“I am love” is not just a movie, but a film that in just seven years has become a cult movie and tells the story of a typical Italian family.
Absolute expression of the rites and social conventions of the high industrial bourgeoisie, in which Ivan Cotroneo, Barbara Alberti and Walter Fasano tell the story, love, litigation and the drama of Recchi family.
The film was produced in collaboration with First Sun and Mikado Film with the support of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities. Presence justified by the main set in which the film was filmed, Villa Necchi Campiglio, the highest example of Civil Rationalism that can be found in Italy.
The film was distributed in cinemas since March 2010, after being presented not only at the Venice Film Festival, but also as the only Italian film in 2010 at the Sundance Festival.
The plot revolves around the decadence of a powerful bourgeoisie, the industrial one, recounted through the memories and tired boredom of the characters – from homosexual to death, to the betrayal of the protagonist, played by Tilda Swinton.
To celebrate even better Italianity, Italian beauty and taste, dishes prepared by the family chef, young Antonio Biscaglia (Edoardo Gabbriellini) with whom Emma Recchi (Tilda) betrayed the family, are thought and prepared by the multi starred Chef Carlo Cracco. A compendium of atavic decadence framed by a Milan rich in its austere beauty!
