DVD: I Am Love (15)
Under the blanket of refined repression, food is everything in the culinary wonderland of I Am Love.
Cuisine stands for sex, family and betrayal against a backdrop of upper-class Milanese culture as Tilda Swinton plays Emma, icy matriarch to a grand old clan in the midst of a Shakespearean struggle over who will inherit control of the family company. As she falls for her son's friend and chef Antonio (Edoardo Gabbriellini) we're treated to a study in familial ambition and carnal desire, set to a fitting score by John Adams. Luca Guadagnino paints an intoxicating picture of Italy, from the country landscape which frames Emma and Antonio's burgeoning romance to the cold dusk of the opening winter scene.
