... I Am Love matches the delicate grandeur of Guadagnino’s directing style and the highly strung emotion of John Adams’s music on the soundtrack (the first time the American composer has allowed his music to be used for a film). The swirling, intensifying focus moves from the claustrophobia of a Milan mansion during a family dinner to the breezier, looser environs of rural Liguria as Swinton’s character frees herself from the strictures of her marriage, inspired partly by her daughter’s coming out as a lesbian. It’s heady, romantic and tragic stuff...I don't like everything Tilda Swinton does but have a lot of time for her. A character no doubt. This latest film I Am Love looks a bit intense but also looks amazing.
As well as starring in I Am Love, Swinton is a producer on the film...
