I Am Love

I Am Love is a beautiful Italian movie. The movie centers on the lives of the wealthy Recchi family and opens with the patriarch's birthday party. Tilda Swinton is fashionable and gorgeous as the mother of three children who followed their father's proposal from Russia and became "Italian" once she lived in Milan.
The film is as beautiful as it is tragic. It has one Oscar nomination, for Costume Design. The clothes are amazing and it is nice that there is a movie nominated in the category that is not a period piece or fantasy. The music is a bit over the top, but hey, its Italian.
