STARRING: Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson
World famous rock star Marianne Lane (an almost entirely silent Tilda Swinton) and her filmmaker beau Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts) are chilling out on the stunning remote Italian island of Pantelleria, as she recovers from throat surgery.
Their peace is shattered, however, by the arrival of Marianne’s ex, Harry (Ralph Fiennes), and his teenaged daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson). Little does anybody initially realise just how much drama their arrival will create. An intriguing, pervy, seductive psychodrama, Luca (I Am Love) Guadagnino’s film is based somewhat on 1969’s La Piscine, and is almost certain to have you contemplating the Mediterranean for your next overseas jaunt.
