The plot is a rehash of a story that has been used many times, there is a shipwreck where the principals end up stranded on a deserted tropical island and they are from widely different social classes. The setting this time is in the Mediterranean Sea and Madonna plays the materialistic wife of an extremely wealthy man. She is with her husband and some other wealthy people on a luxury ship and she treats one of the staff (Pepe) like dirt. She demands that he do everything and refuses to use his real name, generally speaking to him with contempt.
When the Madonna character demands that Pepe take her in a motorized rubber boat, he at first refuses but she is a woman that will not be denied. The motor stalls and they end up on an island with no other people and the only structure is an old wooden shack.
With Pepe the only one with knowledge of how to survive, the roles are reversed, although it takes some time for the woman to realize it. The action goes along a predictable path, although the sadistic nature of Pepe goes on a bit too long. Love blooms as long as they are alone, but things will be different if they are rescued and return to civilization.
The ending is the only major point of the plot that is unpredictable as the viewer wonders if the lure of money and civilization will prove stronger when it is returned rather than love and happiness in a simple life.
The performances really are nothing to rave about, although all are adequate. Some scenes, such as the repeated humilation of Pepe and the love scenes on the beach, are repeated too many times. We get the point and then it is reinforced over and over again to the point of dullness. It is an average movie.

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.
