When Harry (Ralph Fiennes) and his daughter, Penelope (Dakota Johnson), crash rock legend Marianne Lane's (Tilda Swinton) holiday with her beau Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts), old flames, nostalgia, desire, love, jealousy and youth are thrown into a boiling pot that looks like it's about to brim over…

"Our characters are drawn into their truest version of themselves and enter a tangled nexus of sex and burning desire, pushing them to a dark side," says the film's director Luca Guadagnino. "I see this as a completely modern psychological relationship drama; our classic cinematic bones and structure take shape in a most modern way of storytelling and characters who lead us to a charged and unsettling climax."

All taking place under the Mediterranean sun of the volcanic island Pantelleria, it's set to be an incredibly stylish film, but it looks as though the beautiful tale of passion and innocent indiscretions turns into a whirlwind thriller of panic and potentially murder in this one minute, 22 second montage…

A Bigger Splash is due for UK release 12th February 2016
