About the Movie
Madonna and Adriano Giannini star in director/screenwriter Guy Ritchie's contemporary adaptation of Lina Wertmuller's 1974 romantic comedy, "Swept Away," a story of love, sex and too much money - all set against the backdrop of a spectacular Mediterranean island paradise. A rich, spoiled socialite (Madonna) and a handsome Italian fisherman (Giannini) find themselves stranded on a deserted island where matters of material wealth and class disparity are meaningless. And in their struggle to survive and coexist in their paradise found, they soon discover that their dramatic differences are suddenly the source of a fierce, passionate and sometimes hilarious animal attraction.
This is honestly one of the worst movies I've ever seen- boring; poorly acted; poorly directed- It is a complete disaster. It doesn't even deserve one star! Madonna has always been critiscised for her acting abilities and this movie is definitely an example of some poor work on her behalf. Worth getting just to see how unbelievably poor it is.
This movie was very much underappreciated at time of release due to it being another "Madonna" movie... watch the film for yourself and you'll find it to be a well acted, well directed story of an unconventional love. Maybe skip the first 15 or so minutes though... :)
I'd rather stick pins in my eyes than watch this again.
Bad acting, bad script, bad music. I challenge anyone to tell me a good movie that Guy Richie produced WHILE with Madonna????
