Ralph Fiennes dances during Venice Film Festival photocall

Posted on


When that boogie fever hits, you just have to go with it — even if you’re posing for photos in front of professional photographers. Ralph Fiennes made a big splash during the Venice Film Festival photocall for his latest film, A Bigger Splash, by spontaneously dancing a little jig for the cameras.

A Bigger Splash, directed by Luca Guadagnino, is a psychological drama starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, and Matthias Schoenaerts. Thankfully, this photo opp was anything but dramatic, as evidenced by Fiennes and his dance moves.


In the film, Fiennes portrays a record producer and the ex-lover of a rock legend (Swinton). When he arrives on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with his daughter (Johnson), he spoils his ex’s holiday vacation with her current partner (Schoenaerts).

Fox Searchlight will release A Bigger Splash in theaters on May 13, 2016.
