Emma (Tilda Swinton), a Russian emigre and the matriarch of a wealthy Milanese family, lives in a carefully ordered world where duty towards husband and children dominates her life. But after a chance discovery reveals an unspoken love her world is thrown open to sensuality and she embarks on a journey of unbridled passion that will shake her family's foundations to the core. Hailed by critics and lauded by audiences across the world, 'I Am Love' is a breath-taking tour de force of cinematic beauty. As lush, sumptuous and visually arresting as it is moving, heartbreaking and overwhelmingly powerful, this stunning account of the pain and pleasure of desire will leave you gasping for air.
Why did this film receive so many awards?? Yes there are some good actors and actresses and the location is pretty but it is so boring and I could not connect to any of the characters so that when tragedy strikes I felt "who cares"!
really enjoyed this film. marvellous depiction of the inner workings of an italian family. the pace of the film is just perfect. one of those films where you just marvel at how good a film can be. have since watched a couple of other films by same director, but without the same sense of awe, in fact no awe at all..but watch this film, it's very very very good.

It is breathtaking that millions starve while large sums are spent on films like this: how in God's name did it ever get made? a stunning exercise in vacuity...
