Cheating Scenes in I Am Love (2009)
Edoardo becomes a close friend of a chef named Antonio. He makes him handle the food preparation in several parties or dinners of his rich family. Thus, this is how Antonio gets to know Edoardo’s mom, Emma (Tilda Swinton).
In one of their gatherings, Emma finds Antonio’s cooking so delicious that she unknowingly closes her eyes while savoring it and forgets that she is in a room full of people. After the lunch, she comes to him and tells him how great his food is. She also asks him questions and gets to know him more. She finds out that he usually stays in Sanremo.
Emma walks the streets of Sanremo and chances upon Antonio. Like a schoolgirl having a crush, she follows him secretly. When she thinks he is about to see her, she enters one of the shops along the street. When she comes out, Antonio bumps into her. Antonio invites her to come to his place in the mountains where he and Edoardo are planning to put up their restaurant. She comes with him to the mountains, and there’s a very short, blurry scene where Edoardo approaches her and makes out with her. When Emma comes home, she is giggling and laughing, like she did something naughty which also makes her very happy.
Emma and Antonio’s next meeting is supposed to be only to discuss what food to serve in the next event that he will be handling. But Antonio brings Emma again to his place and screw hers. This is a real sex scene here compared to their first encounter. Emma stays longer and they also have sex in the outdoors and on the grass.
Later in the film, Edoardo finds out about his friend and his mom’s relationship. He freaks out and accidentally dies while confronting Emma. After his funeral, Emma confesses to her husband that he loves Antonio. He tells her she doesn’t exist from then on. She leaves her family (and the wealth that comes with it) and comes to Antonio. After the credits, the two are seen lying beside each other inside a cave.
