It's not quite up to Seven Beauties, but this unofficial -- more politically charged -- variation on J.M. Barrie's The Admirable Crichton doesn't miss by much.

Audience Reviews for Travolti da un Insolito Destino nell'Azzurro Mare d'Agosto (Swept Away)

A cliche, but I was swept away by this beautiful film. Politics, class struggle, gender roles~ a microcosm of life, with and without familiar institutions. Giancarlo Giannini is so very expressive and versatile, readily conveying comedy or tragedy just by the look on his face. This film is rich, but I don't want to analyze it here ~ just enjoy the experience!!!

Hmmm... I don't quite have the words to say how much this movie was completely insane. I don't know for sure if I like it or not. Decisions, decisions.

A great little film that Guy Ritchie and Madonna should have just left alone.
