I was NOT in love with this movie...lovely scenery and good performances, but just a bit predictable and dull
honestly....I was bored...I found the movie to be a bit choppy and predictable. Swinton does give a very good performance.
Lovely movie and breathtaking cinematography.
Was I the only one left with ....what? Tilda Swinton truly shines, but unless I'm missing a chip, I really didn't get the dangling end. Seeing Italy again was gorgeous - the cinematography was exquisite -- the end left me blank!
Breathtakingly beautiful cinematography, with lush views of Italian upper class family life
Awesome story line.
The story has been told before but rarely in such a compelling way. Well-acted, with an unexpected tragic twist, wonderful love scenes, and interiors, and a magnificent score.
looks like it moves fast.
Great story--in Italian with English subtitles--beautiful scenery of the Italian countryside and how the rich people live--tragic ending --in one way --but happiness for one!
This film is sensuality and beauty personified. Tilda Swinton's performance is the most subtle and believable of her stellar career. The beauty of the Milanese real estate, the Jil Sander clothes, the actors and the food porn is not to be missed!
Really enjoyed it.
Romantic European style love story.
This movie reminded me of the book "Mrs. Dalloway" by Viginia Woolf. The plot was not spectacular, but that isn't the purpose, the characters are what really are important. It shows a complex tension between traditional and modern, self and society.
A foreign import whose initially chilly demeanor will melt away for any viewer willing to stick with it.
Very good, excellent directing.
