The vacation of a famous rock star and her boyfriend in Italy is disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter.
The sunglasses that Matthias Schoenaerts' Paul wears throughout the film, is a reissue of the Vuarnet 006 sunglasses worn by Alain Delon in The Swimming Pool (1969), which became a sensation at the time. Vuarnet didn't pay for the product placement in A Bigger Splash.
Paul De Smedt:
Harry Hawkes: We're all obscene. Everyone's obscene. That's the whole fucking point. We see it and we love each other anyway.
Penelope tells everyone she is 22 years old and her passport shows a birth date in November 1993, which is consistent with her being 22 in 2015. Later, the police state that Penelope is actually only 17. However, no issue is raised about her having a fraudulent passport (which is a serious matter) and she is allowed to fly home seemingly without penalty. Not even a scolding.
The initial credits have the roles and names on yellow shapes (like small mosaic pieces) on a black background, before reverting to more traditional lists.
