Overwhelmed by an unusual fate in the blue sea of August: plot, cast and streaming
Tonight, August 14, 2021, at 9.20 pm on Rete 4 airs Swept by an unusual destiny in the blue sea of August, a 1974 film written and directed by Lina Wertmüller. But let’s see all the information together in detail.
Raffaella Pavone Lanzetti, a rich anti-communist bourgeois, spends her holidays on a yacht in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea with her rich and spoiled friends. During the cruise he does nothing but emphasize his high social rank, humiliating his subordinates, including Gennarino Carunchio, a crude Sicilian Communist sailor, who nurtures feelings of impatience and contempt towards rich tourists, but who must in spite of himself serve to survive. Gennarino finds himself having to satisfy the requests of the “mistress”, until the two find themselves alone in the open sea due to an engine failure. Having landed on a desert island, the roles are reversed and Pavone Lanzetti will inevitably become the sailor’s slave, who unleashes ancient social and sexual frustrations on her, giving rise to a strong passion between the two. After Raffaella on one occasion avoids being noticed by a boat that appeared in the distance, thus not calling for help so as not to break what they both experience as a magnificent daydream, on a second occasion Gennarino, despite Raffaella’s opposition, he decides to be rescued, in order to test her love. But, back in civilization, even if their love is preserved, the different social rank separates them abruptly. In the end, the man tries to convince his beloved to return with him to the island, but Raffaella doesn’t feel like it and runs off in a helicopter with her husband. Gennarino just has to go back with his wife, who, in the meantime, has understood everything.
