The Story

Class warfare hits the high seas in this Italian comedy about Gennarino (Giancarlo Giannini), a long-suffering crew member who works on a rich couple's yacht. The wife, Raffaela (Mariangela Melato), verbally abuses Gennarino and regularly insults his communist views. But when a day trip leaves the pair stranded at sea, they wash up on a deserted island and Raffaela is, suddenly, no longer the one in control. The role reversal leads to an unexpected and contentious love affair.

Co-presented with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne.
