I Am Love

The Recchi family are a well-bred and well-moneyed family of Milan whose lives are grand and cold as a museum - but all that's about to change. Eduardo Sr., the family patriarch, declares he's going to split his industrial empire between his son Tancredi and grandson Edo. However, the family is not as stable as it seems: Edo dreams of a different life (opening a restaurant with his friend Antonio) and Tancredi's wife, Emma (Tilda Swinton), shakes the family to the core when she starts a passionate affair with young Antonio. Co-produced by Swinton, who learnt Italian, with a Russian accent, for the role of Emma.
