Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto

Lina Wertmüller Włochy, 1974

Samuel T.'s rating of the film Swept Away

4.5 Sure, overly verbose, histrionic max, irony overload, explicit social commentary, but come on... this is CINEMA. I found myself sneering, gaging, laughing out loud often, even a little tear here and there (I'm sensitive). This feels like some open rope Buñuel dropped from the mast. The "point" is clearly made, via a devastating love story. A satire that pricks under the skin. But can you deny the humanity?
