Ravishing to the eye and empty in the head, Luca Guadagnino’s voluptuous Italian saga takes time to admire all the stuff belonging to a rich Milanese industrialist and his crumbling-from-within family. Thank heavens the clan can nurse their unhappiness in high swankiness. The most restless (and ravishing) person in I Am Love is Tilda Swinton as the daughter of a Russian art dealer, married into the family and drawn to her son’s hunky best friend. O sexytime in the countryside! O many wardrobe changes! The film is almost deliriously stylish, which helps mask the silliness. But the bellowing music, by John Adams, is infuriatingly intrusive — which undoes the visual good. C+
