This is a 1974 Italian comedy-romance written and directed by Lina Wertmüller.
It is about a wealthy woman whose yachting vacation with friends in the Mediterranean Sea takes an unexpected turn when she and one of the boat's crew are separated from the others and they become stranded on a deserted island.
The woman's capitalist beliefs and the man's communist convictions clash, but during their struggle to survive their situation as well as their social roles are reversed.
Although you will certainly laugh your head off, there is something serious in the story.
It is a hilariously funny and profoundly amusing film---one of the best Italian movies.

Slightly disturbing Italian film that examines class warfare.
