I Am Love

January 27, 2011

Rented this the other night, a film that came out in 2009, starring Tilda Swinton.  The whole film is in  Italian and Russian and is mesmerizing; shot in Milan, Nice, San Remo and London.  It’s a  “continental” film to be sure, languorously paced, erotic, with tension building quietly as the stifling orthodoxies of family and wealth are ruptured irrevocably by passion. An old story, true, but well  executed, and especially appealing to me, food is the heart of seduction.
