A shimmering tale of jealousy and intrigue
Filming Locations:
Matthias Schoenaerts started shooting for Disorder (2015) in France only three weeks since he finished shooting 'A Bigger Splash' in Italy.

This is Luca Guadagnino's first English-language film since The Protagonists (1999)

The entire film was shot in nine weeks, shooting for six days a week.

The title 'A Bigger Splash' was inspired from the colorful David Hockney's 1967 painting.

While filming, the cast lived in individual houses built into the rocks on the island of Pantelleria, Italy

Ralph Fiennes's entire dancing scene was shot in one day

Penelope's role was to be initially played by Margot Robbie, who dropped out due to scheduling conflicts leading to Dakota Johnson replacing her.

This movie competed for the Golden Lion at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.
