SWEPT AWAY (1974)
[TRAVOLTI DA UN INSOLITO DESTINO NELL'AZZURRO MARE D'AGOSTO]
This politically provocative romantic farce pits arrogant, unapologetically capitalist yacht owner Raffaella (Mariangela Melato) against dedicated communist and silently resentful deckhand Gennarino (Giancarlo Giannini) in a battle of wills. When the pair become lost at sea and marooned on a desert island, their survival comes to depend on adopting contradictory political positions from those they had espoused in civilization, with a primal, decidedly unenlightened take on gender roles prevailing. Two different worlds of inequality — who's to say which one is worse? DIR/SCR Lina Wertmüller; PROD Romano Cardarelli. Italy, 1974, color, 116 min. In Italian with English subtitles. RATED R
