I AM LOVE (Io sono l’amore)
Luca Guadagnino, Italy, 2009
Watching this lush, operatic Italian drama about a clannish family of wealthy Milanese industrialists is like suddenly being exposed to a full orchestra when you have become accustomed to listening to the plaintive sawing of a lone violinist. It’s an exquisite, all-enveloping feast of sensual pleasures. It’s almost certainly the most elegant piece of cinema you’ll see this year.
On the big screen at The Embassy Theatre at 6:15pm on Monday August 2.
