Vincent Perez (The Crow, City of Angels) and Rachel Weisz (Stealing Beauty) star with Ian McKellen and Kathy Bates in this passionate film about two star-crossed lovers. Amy Foster, considered a simpleton by some and a witch by others, is accused of conjuring the fierce storm which causes a shipwreck. Only one man survives and is immediately drawn to strange Amy. A haunting tale of love and loss, Swept From the Sea is "a superb, epic and moving romance". Brilliantly directed and performed. "Four stars." - Paul Wunder, WBAI RADIO

However, I love this film, it has been a favorite of mine since it was released 10 years ago. It was my introduction to Rachel Weisz, who captivates in a largely silent role with heart wrenching expressions and just a pure, commanding presence. This was also my introduction to Vincent Perez, who creates a great chemistry with Weisz, the earthly Yanko managing to touch and forever hold on to, the ethereal Amy, even in death. If you are looking for a romantic film with substance, Swept from The Sea is it.
What makes this story/film so wonderful is that it is told in such a way that you are piecing together the history of their lives and the eventual ending is made more sweet than bitter. Amy's actions are misunderstood and she does eventually gain the understanding she so deserves. The acting was wonderful--tight, internalized, and powerful.Waiting for Odysseus
