Director Luca Guadagnino talks costumes, choreography, and generational conflict in A Bigger Splash. Like a good rock album, the film is sweaty, messy, carefree, and irresistible.
A Bigger Splash opens March 24 in Australia.
It’s hard to find a film more sinfully enjoyable than Luca Guadagnino’s vibrant thriller A Bigger Splash. Guadagnino is best known for his work in the fashion world for brands like Moschino and Ferragamo and for his previous film I Am Love (also starring Tilda Swinton), which explored a slowly collapsing Italian dynasty. While I Am Love was grounded in silences and images of grandeur, A Bigger Splash is the opposite. Like a good rock album, it’s sweaty, messy, carefree, and irresistible. We caught up with Guadagnino to discuss the film’s costumes, choreography, and generational conflict.
