Behind the scenes of "A Bigger Splash," Starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton
In Luca Guadagnino's "A Bigger Splash," a stylish remake of Jacques Delray's 1969 "La Piscine" in theaters May 4, the bedroom intrigue is relocated from the Côte d’Azur to the remote Sicilian island of Pantelleria. Against the backdrop of a bohemian villa atop a rocky hill, an aging rock diva (Tilda Swinton) and her boyfriend's (Matthias Schoenaerts) languorous holiday is turned upside down by the arrival of an ex-lover (Ralph Fiennes) and his daughter (Dakota Johnson). Haunted by the hot winds, scorched by the sun, and bedeviled by wine, the foursomes' inhibitions disappear, as a soup of sexual tension—everyone wants to sleep with everyone it seems, including father and daughter—begins to boil over, turning a glamorous swoon into a feverish dream. Here, Guadagnino takes us behind the scenes.
