Sight and Sound - 03/01/2005
"Giannini, looking like the ancient mariner, and Mariangela Melato excel as the couple who loathe each other so much it's inevitable they'll fall in love."

Product Description:

An Italian film which traces the relationship that develops between a rich, selfish woman and a slovenly sailor when they become shipwrecked.

Plot Synopsis:

Raffaela, a fiery and independent Italian factory owner, gets stranded on a deserted, edenic island with a virile yacht hand who has the uncanny knack of reducing women to sexual objects. She succumbs to his strong and forceful masculinity, and falls madly in love. Then comes the moment of their rescue and exile from paradise, when returning to society forces them to deal with harsh, cold reality.
