When my wife brought this movie home, I looked at the DVD and thought: Wait a minute...oh no, this is that Madonna film that got panned left and right...what did you do? But it was a rainy Friday night (movie night), and nothing else was on, so I went into this with the lowest of expectations.
I am certainly not a big Madonna fan. While I admire how she's been able to reinvent herself musically, her acting ability leaves something to be desired. Her acting in this movie was not good...not good at all. But that aside, I felt the supporting cast was excellent, especially Adriano Giannini. Next to him, Madonna looked like an awkward first year high school drama student. Had someone else played the role of Madonna's spoiled rich girl, say Annette Bening or Debra Winger, the movie would have probably done much better. Madonna's lack of screen credibility doomed this one right out of the gate. Granted, Madonna's getting up there in age, but I was struck by how old and gristly she looked...even with makeup.
The cinematography was actually really good. Shots of the beach, panoramic shots of the ocean, the flora and fauna, all were visually pleasing. I'd probably watch the DVD again for that alone.
Would I run out and buy it? No. Would I rent it? Yes. Only if there was nothing else to choose from. On an "A" to "F" grading scale, it's a solid "C-".

A Rich, Spoiled Woman (Madonna) and a handsome Italina Fisherman (Adriano Gianini) find themselves stranded on a Medterrarean Island Paradise. It`s a island, where things of power and class are meaningless. At first, they truly deeply hate eachother until there`s differences come to a stop. They are suddenly attracted to eachother.
Directed by Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels-Snatch) made a watchable, sometimes funny romantic film that is Interesting to look at. Alex Barber`s Cinematography is the Highlight of the Movie. The film has some good moments but moments of mean-spirited, some viewers will be turned off. This is a Remake of the 1974 film, directed by Lina Mertmuller. Giannini`s father:Giancarlo was in the Original Film. DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer and an terrific Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD has 16 Deleted Scenes with/without Commentary, theatrical trailers but the DVD Best Feature is the Jokey 20-Minute Featurette of Swept Away is the most entertaining, Even Funnier than the Movie! This film isn`t as bad, you might think. True, it was a Box Office Flop, the film might receive a Cult Status. The film is a Curio at Best. Grade:B+.

I waited until the movie came out on TV and I was glad. I saw it on HBO and it took will-power not to change the channel. Nothing else was on anyway. The story wasn't too orginal and her acting wasn't great either. This movie kind of reminds me of "Six days, Seven Nights". She is not someone that should play a lead role in a movie. As I said before the plot isn't that great. A pampered princess goes on cruise with her husband and friends. Then her and male crew member, who can't stand her and was ordered around by her all though the trip get stuck on the island. Then the roles reverse and she becomes the servant, and to make this plot even more brillant she starts to fall in love with him (even though he hits her) and is willing to leave her husband for him (good leason for the kiddies). The fact that her husband directed it turns me off because the fact I can picture her running around the set acting as she is better than everyone and people taking it because your husband is the director. Just look at the box, can her name and picture get any bigger, can you get any more ego centered. Overall I saw rent or buy if can get for cheap.

This one wasn't all that great. I would have given it four stars, but the ending persuaded me to give it only three. I wouldn't say that I dislike it. I thought it was okay, but I am disappointed in it.
Madonna plays Amber Leighton, a 40 year old rich woman, who as everything she wants, but it is very unhappy. She is a hard, demanding, selfish, cruel, cold hearted woman. People must obey her every command. Amber, her husband, Tony, and their friends, Michael, and his wife Marinna, and Todd, and his girlfriend Debi, all take a cruise to Italy and Greece. There, they meet Guiseppe (Peppe for short) (played by Adrianno Gianinni), a poor Italian fisherman. Peppe goes through constant torture and frustration with Amber. She annoys his with her selfishness and cruelness. One morning, the two get on a raft to catch up with everybody else, but they get lost. They find an island, which happens to be deserted, as usual. When they get to this island, Peppe turns the tables and tells Amber that he is now in charge. He wants her to know and feel what it's like to be treated like crap, to know and feel what it's like to fend for someone else. As Amber begins to change, the two begin to fall in love.
Don't get me wrong. The movie wasn't all that bad. I just wish it could have ended better. That's the only thing I dislike about this movie.

I guess it would be all too easy to take the critic's word for it, and believe Swept Away is a complete disaster - ruined by Madonna's "wooden" performance. But considering Swept Away grossed something around $500,000 at the box office and is available at very few stores or film rentals, I don't think most of this film's detractors have actually seen it. It seems like everyone today is talking about how bad an actress Madonna is (and in no small way comparing this film to Glitter or Gigli), but if everyone who criticizes this film has actually seen it, wouldn't it have made a lot more money?
That said, the film is good. The only problem I had with it was the rape scene. It is hard to believe that a woman would fall in love with a man who tried to rape her. However, the love scenes are truly touching (the most affecting is a series of love scenes to the sound of "Fade into You" by Mazzy Star) and the ending is tender and thought-provoking. Although Swept Away is not all it could have been, it is a thoughtful and entertaining love story benefitted by a sincere and admirable performance by Madonna. As a dynamic character, she is believable and touching. I dare you to say Madonna can't act after you have seen this film, particularly the scene where she is crying in the helicopter at the the end of the film. .
People have been much too harsh towards this film. I don't think it was intended to be a blockbuster - the production seemed relatively small. It is, however, a funny, touching, and thought-provoking love story with a tender performance by Madonna and a great score (if you can overlook the sometimes loud tropical music in favor of the subtle orchestrations, piano, and brilliant song choices). A hidden gem that looks good in my DVD collection next to other underrated classics, such as Far and Away (remember when people complained Nicole Kidman couldn't act? She showed them!) and Artificial Intelligence.
