Movie Review: I Am Love

New name for this movie: I Am Bored.
Everything about this movie is very melodramatic, from the credits to the annoying music to the storyline, and that's not necessarily a bad thing except if you have to sit through it. I like a good sex scene as much as the next person but there's one in this movie that just goes on and on and on and on, the camera moving slowly over curves and body parts (nothing graphic), and then back over them again. And again. Now I know that may cause some of you to run right out to see this film but don't waste your time.
The story moves very slowly and is very contrived, especially at the end when an improbable tragedy causes some sort of catharsis. If there was chemistry with any of the characters, either to each other or to the audience, it might have worked, but there isn't. No stars for this one.
