Watch the tantalising trailer for A Bigger Splash

“We’re all obscene… Everyone’s obscene. That’s the point.” So say Ralph Fiennes to Matthias Schoenaerts in this scintillating Mediterranean melodrama from I Am Love writer/director Luca Guadagnino.

A remake of sorts of the 1969 film La Piscine, A Bigger Splash tells the story of ageing rock star Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) and her younger lover Paul (Schoenaerts) who, while vacationing on the volcanic island of Pantelleria, are unexpectedly joined by hirsute old flame Harry (Fiennes) and his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson). Suffice to say things get pretty steamy under the blistering Sicilian sun.
