“There are snakes at the Italian villa where rock star Marianne Lane is recovering from surgery on her vocal chords. They slither onto the property, but are mostly harmless. Marianne's boyfriend, Paul, just tosses them away. Soon, Marianne's ex, Harry and his newly discovered daughter, Penelope, also slip into the villa uninvited. One wonders if they're as harmless as the snakes. A Bigger Splash is one of those sexy European thrillers that lets us think we're miles ahead of the characters, then delights in revealing just how little we really know. It's smart and seductive, with just a hint of menace, as the characters prowl around each other. It's also gorgeously shot, with Instagram-ready close-ups of delectable food and stylish clothes, reveling in a life that looks easy, but only from afar. Tired and recuperating, Marianne is thrilled to be in Italy with her filmmaker boyfriend, Paul. She can't speak much, so they hit the beach or stay huddled in their idyll, usually naked. Then Harry calls and says he's crashing their party with a ‘surprise.’ That surprise turns out to be Penelope... As for Fiennes, we've never seen him like this before. His music producer Harry is a dervish, spinning from room to room, sucking up all available oxygen. He's a hell of a party, until everyone realizes they can't breathe... What's going on under that roiling surface? And is he the only one with secrets? The mounting tension suggests not. How this love quadrilateral sorts itself out is fascinating, but the film doesn't end there... There aren't that many smart movies made for adults these days, so take time to savor this one.” - Alynda Wheat, People Magazine
