I Am Love

We went to see this movie last night. It was beautiful, and very Italian. It's a little puzzling at first, because it doesn't explain anything. You just have to watch and let it unfold. It's a far cry from a typical American movie. If that's all you are used to, you might not have the patience to appreciate it. It focuses on beautiful details and subtle gestures. More is said by nuance than by dialog.

Tilda Swinton is incredible to watch. It's her movie. She was fascinating. The movie was fascinating. Sometimes I thought the music was a bit too melodramic (especially at the end). That was the only fault I found with it. I think it's a movie that would be good to see over again, so that once you know the story you can go back and savor the details.

I'm going to add it to my Netflix queue. I remember seeing Tilda in the movie Orlando years ago.
