A BIGGER SPLASH is an erotic crime/mystery drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, Melissa P.) and written by Alain Page and David Kajganic, loosely based on Jacques Deray’s steamy 1969 French film La Piscine (The Swimming Pool). The film stars Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts and Tilda Swinton. It was screened in the main competition section of the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.
Rock legend Marianne Lane (Swinton) is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul (Schoenaerts) when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry (Fiennes) unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope (Johnson) and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue.
