Swept Away . . . by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August

116 minutes 1974

Lina Wertmuller's simpleminded sexual-political allegory (1974) about a working-class slob and a rich bitch stranded together on a deserted island in the Mediterranean. The "messages" are not only painfully obvious but, on the sexual level, extremely dubious as well. Directed in a sub-Fellini style of goggling close-ups and overstylized long shots, the film is overblown and overlong. With Giancarlo Giannini and Mariangela Melato. In Italian with subtitles.
