Directed by Lina Wertmuller
Raffaella, a rich,
beautiful, acid-tongued Milanese who has chartered a yacht, and Gennarino,
a swarthy Sicilian deckhand, are marooned on an isolated island in the
Mediterranean. She is a capitalist for whom the system has paid off, he is
a dedicated Communist. Swept Away is the story of their tumultuous
courtship, in what one critic described as a "fierce battle of the sexes
as witty as it is wise." Letterboxed. Italian with English subtitles.
