(R) Italy – 1 hr 56 min – with subtitles
1974 · d. Lina Wertmüller   Reviews
Starring Giancarlo Giannini, Mariangela Melato, Riccardo Salvino

Wertmüller’s signature combination of sex and politics is at its most potent in this class fable. Aboard an elegant chartered yacht on the Mediterranean, the wealthy and beautiful Raffaella takes pleasure in tormenting the communist sailor Gennarino. Taking shelter on an uninhabited island after the tables turn when an accident leaves them stranded together at sea, their power struggle develops into a strange and perverse love affair. 

Shown in conjunction with the film course Swept Away: The Films of Lina Wertmüller, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
