Synopsis

The adoring Russian matriarch of a wealthy Italian family embarks on a passionate affair with a handsome chef that sends the family into serious upheaval.

Our take

Dazzling the senses, I am Love revives the lavish, elegant, emotionally expressive style of classic 50s melodramas and proves their timeless vitality. And it confirms Tilda Swinton, who learned both Italian and Russian for the role(!), as one of our best, most unpredictable actresses.
