      Nicolas Rapold Film Comment Magazine The predictable end, which comes with an abruptness that feels altogether too constructed, completes the fantasy of transgression that's at the heart of the movie's appeal, however elaborate the trappings. Jun 28, 2013 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The grand architecture of Milan and the icy rhythms of composer John Adams set the tone for this elegant Italian drama about the suffocating power of family, wealth, and tradition. Dec 14, 2010 Full Review Perri Nemiroff CinemaBlend Grandiose family drama packed with rich scenery, stirring performances and comprehensive camerawork - if only the rest wasn't so boring. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 13, 2010 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It demands an audience that desires sumptuousness in their cinema, complete with bravado camerawork and meaningful, metaphoric passages to dissect. Rated: 4/4 Aug 9, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) I Am Love is sensuality distilled, a film that appeals to the senses with temptation, visually, tactfully, gustatory. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 10, 2022 Full Review Fico Cangiano CineXpress Podcast Tilda Swinton is magnificent in this passionate character study of a trapped housewife and her complex family.

      Kate R Во всем виновата уха. RUS The fish soup caused the catastrophe. ENG Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review FC S Are we absolutely sure this isn't a fashion film? In a good way. And I can write this same comment under Suspiria or A bigger splash. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/20/23 Full Review J K Easily one of my favorites. It's shot so well, acting is phenomenal and the visual story telling is just top notch. His movies always make me want to run away into the northern Italian countryside and grow my own food. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/24/23 Full Review martona t The movie develops slowly to spectacularly round off with a unique spectacle of music and vision. The emotionless noble family is difficult to relate to at the beginning, but when seen complete, the movie justifies each artistic tool used. It is a dramatic portrait of loneliness, isolation and confinement. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review william k Finely produced, stylish and well-cast melodrama is rich in detail and rewarding to watch, but its contrived plot and high society settings are a bit off-putting. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It has its good moments but, overall, it's quite uneven and not at all original.
