A Bigger Splash

Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes lead this psychological suspense drama alongside Dakota Johnson (50 Shades of Grey) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone). From the director of the Academy Award-nominated I Am Love.

When a glamorous couple decide to vacation on a remote Italian island (Swinton and Schoenaerts), their rest is disrupted by the sudden visit of an old friend (Fiennes) and his luscious daughter (Johnson). Suddenly, what was supposed to be a perfect romantic getaway turns into a whirlwind of jealousy, passion and danger, sparking some flames that should not necessarily be ignited.

A loose remake of forgotten 1969 French thriller La Piscine, I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino’s eroticised drama is best thought of as a sort of Euro-centric Sexy Beast – Sexy Beasts, perhaps. Both feature Brits abroad disturbed by force-of-nature guests; and both are better as portrayals of unsettling group dynamics than as thrillers.

A cocktail of intense emotions, transcendent surroundings and unexpected detours. A real pleasure.

A modern cinematic opera - the sun-kissed bacchanal followed by the tempestuous comedown.

The film feels empty and intellectualized at the core, where it should feel powerfully emotional.

Empire Magazine

A stylish, unorthodox erotic drama that tries hard but fails to maintain its eccentric momentum.
