Io sono l’amore (I Am Love) (2009)

Sometimes when you go to see a film which is presented as ‘the best film of the year’ (in our case by the 16th aiff program) you have a lot of expectations. This is human nature and of course, this judgment acts against it!

So, I’ll try to see it from a distance. The plot is good, acting is excellent, the social environment is presented in a convincing manner. There are scenes which have a kind of magic in them, probably worth to see the film just for these: the scene where Tilda Swinton is eating the shrimps plate prepared by Edoardo Gabbriellini, as well the scene where the rain starts to water the faces of the stone statues are superb. There are also scenes where action and music are very well blended, like the one where Tilda Swinton follows Edoardo Gabbriellini in San Remo.

But the love between the two people is not presented to the extent to be convincing: out of a two hours movie, a small fraction is devoted to their coming together. Overall, after seeing “I Am Love“, it leaves the impression that if some things would have been worked more, in a better way, it would be a really great film.

My rating: 07/10
