I Am Love
A feast for the senses but cold on real feeling - muireann bernadino
I greatly enjoyed this film. I went to it not having read any review and so had no idea of the story line. I found myself whisked away by the film's very sensual content. The spectacular scenery, the state of the art buildings, the expensive tasteful fashion made me feel as if I was on some glorious holiday and the food reminded me of how I felt when watching the film 'Babette's feast'. It was a feast for the senses and just exactly what I needed after a hard days work.
Nevertheless, while this film is very gratifying to the senses, its basic premise - follow your own interest even the expense of hurting others is hard to digest. Its not even so much that the main character Emma (Tilda Swinton) pursues her own ends, but rather that she does this so ruthlessly and heartlessly. In the end this film left me feeling as if I had witnessed something quite distasteful even though it had been served to me on a platter of gold.
