Tilda Swinton in this Italian film is convincing as a Russian who marries into a wealthy it Italian family. A film produced to the highest production standards: music of a Michael Nyman like urgency, cinematography that loved what it saw, editing that adjusted pace and angle with extraordinary care. There is food you want to eat, italian mountains you want to visit. Too crafted? Not at all. Contrived? Not one bit. A creditable view on the lives of the very wealthy.
