Episode 556: Swept Away (1974)

Samm Deighan and Trevor Gumbel join Mike to discuss Lina Wertmuller’s 1974 film Swept Away. Also known as Overwhelmed by an unusual fate in the blue sea of ​​August, it’s the story of Gennarino (Giancarlo Giannini) and Rafaella (Mariangela Melato). She’s a bourgeoisie on vacation with her husband who has nothing good to say about anything, especially the service on her yacht which Gennarino provides. They get separated from the ship and end up on a deserted island where they fight to survive and fight with one another. We'll be discussing the Guy Ritchie remake as well as Marco Ferreri's 1972 film La Cagna which shares some similarities with Wertmuller's film.
