He reigned terror In Harry Potter but in A Bigger Splash UK trailer Lord Voldemort gets the silent treatment from The White Witch of Narnia. A Bigger Splash is in an impeccably stylish tale of love, beauty, desire, sexuality; people who in trying to retreat from their world, only find it encroaching further upon them.
If you ever wondered when people just drop by , that sometimes “just dropping by” can be worst thing an do, Tilda Swinton replies with haunting silence.
A Bigger Spalsh is a sort of remake of Jacques Deray’s 1969 La Piscine telling the story of Rock legend Marianne Lane is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue.
A Bigger Splash is a sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock and roll, under the Mediterranean sun.
Since it’s premiere at Venice Film Festival the film has been gaining a momentum. A fantastic cast which also includes Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall, Grand Budapest Hotel) Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey, Black Mass) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Far From The Madding Crowd). Schoenaerts earned much acclaimed including a Golden Lion Nomination. Whilst on the surface it looks like this is a feelgood film there is suggestions this is sadistically dark in tone!
A Bigger Splash arrives in UK&Ireland 12th February 2016.
