One of the most sumptuous and operatic films I’ve ever experienced on the big screen, this astounding drama of Italian luxury and aristocracy will hopefully put newish director Luca Guadagnino on the art-house radar.
Tilda Swinton is an actress I was not familiar with until now. I first saw her in the film the Lion, witch, Wardrobe at Christmas and I was spellbound, her performance as the White Witch was outstanding. I read the book as a child and she just hit the Witch's character to a tee. I have seen many actresses play the evil Queen; Witch and Godmother but Tilda tops them all. Richard Burton had his voice and Bette Davis her eyes well Tilda has them both; as they of great actors she is one of a kind.
