This looks like a stage or silent film setting, with absolutely no tension inherent. The men stand by with luxuriant towels as the two family groups look on.
What the hell is going on here? Who even came up with this? And why? I can't figure out any plausible scenario for this obviously staged event. And I'm not even going to try.
I will say, however, that judging from the slightly aggressive tilt of the shoulder on the woman at our right, that the woman in white is in for it.
