This movie that I saw only in bits and pieces was on one of the premium channels at some point

in the last four or five years. Perhaps Italian, perhaps Greek; subtiled. Two people stranded on

an island (I think in the Medeterrenan). An aristocratic woman, a common seaman. There are

politics involved; the sailor is a Marxist with attitude. If this sounds familiar, I'd like to know the

title. It was never on at a time when I could give it full attention.


Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Swept Away is actually a remake.


The original story comes from a play, The Admirable Crichton, by J.M. Barrie (yes, the same man who wrote Peter Pan ).


There are two film versions with the same title as the play (1918 and 1957), and one by Cecil B. DeMille from 1919, called Male and Female, starring Thomas Meighan and Gloria Swanson.

The latter has been shown on TCM and is available on dvd.
