Millionaire's wife Raffaella is a loathsome woman who used to getting exactly what she wants. On Holiday aboard a private yacht in the Mediterranean with group of friends and bored of lounging around and playing cards, she demands that the deckhand Gennarino takes her to nearby island to go swimming. When the motor on the boat dies, the two end up stranded and drifting, finally coming to rest on a desolate beach. Stuck on a deserted island and now having to rely on Gennarino for food and shelter, the relationship shifts. With her fortune now counting for nothing, Raffaella has to cope with this reversal of power in order to survive.

As exciting now as when first released - Swept Away review by CW

Spoiler Alert

So glad to be able to watch Lina Wurtmuller’s Swept Away again. Lead actors are absolutely marvellous. They worked with the director on several films. She studied with Fellini. Madonna and Guy Ritchy did a remake but the original is definitely the one to see. Shocking, brutal at times, sexual, romantic, sad. We laughed and gasped. Just wish that Lina Wurtmuller’s Seven Beauties was available in UK. Story takes place on a yacht and later on a gorgeous remote island with pale sand and the clearest water.
