SWEPT AWAY
On an elegant yacht cruising off the coast of
Sardinia, Raffaella (Mariangela Melato), a rich
and stunning capitalist, enjoys tormenting
Gennarino (Giancarlo Giannini), a Communist

stranded together on a deserted island. SWEPT
AWAY is Wertmüller’s most famous and controversial film about sex, love and politics.

SEVEN BEAUTIES

against their wishes, young King Ferdinando

the senses.
