The Best 'A Bigger Splash' Movie Quotes

A Bigger Splash movie quotes tell the story of a rock star and photographer whose private vacation is crashed by an old flame and his daughter. The thriller was written by David Kajganich using a story created by Alain Page as loosely inspired by the 1969 French film La Piscine. Directed by Luca Guadagnino, A Bigger Splash opened in theaters in the United States on May 4, 2016.

In A Bigger Splash, renowned rock star Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) and her photographer boyfriend Pail De Smedt (Matthias Schoenaerts) are enjoying peace and quiet on vacation on an Italian island. So when a cell phone rings and an airplane flies overhead, they learn that their private getaway is being interrupted by Harry Hawkes (Ralph Finnes), an old flame of Marianne's, and his daughter, Penelope Lanier (Dakota Johnson).

Despite very much wanting privacy, Marianne invites Harry and Penelope to stay with her and Paul. This causes a great deal of tension between Marianne and Paul, as Paul wonders if Marianne still has feelings for Harry. It doesn't help that Harry still has major feelings for Marianne and spends a great deal of time trying to convince her that she doesn't need Paul. As tensions rise, the fight for Marianne reaches dangerous new levels.

A Bigger Splash joined theaters in early May 2016 alongside the likes of Ratchet & Clank, Mother's Day, Keanu, and A Hologram for the King.

    You Don't Deserve Marianne

    Paul De Smedt: Just stop talking... The world is not ready for your honesty... You're obscene.
    Harry Hawkes: Everyone's obscene. That's the whole point... You don't deserve Marianne.
    Paul De Smedt: Neither do you.

    Paul and Harry do not get along, as usually happens when two men compete for the attention of the same woman. Neither feel the other deserves Marianne, and they are probably not wrong.
