What would happen to your relationship if, suddenly, you either went bankrupt or became a millionaire? Would you be able to distinguish the naked body of your lover only by touching it blindfolded? What kind of choices would you make if that familiar intimacy between you and your lover suddenly felt unbearably boring? Naked presents interesting quests for these issues.
A new film by Doris Dörrie well-known for Nobody Loves Me, Naked deals with the changes that three couples go through in one night, carefully examining the problems of romantic emotions and relationships as filtered through memory, sensation, and desire.
Emilia and Felix recently broke up, yet they have not completely overcome it. Dylan and Charlotte is an overnight-millionaire couple thanks to a successful stock investment. Boris and Annette, the seemingly happy couple, suffer from simple dissatisfaction with each other. Dylan and Charlotte invite the other two couples to a dinner, and as they have their sumptuous meal, the conflicts and complaints among and between the couples burst out. As a result, they end up playing a game of distinguishing, blindfolded, their naked partners. However, things don’t go quite as planned, and their eyes are opened to complex truths about the relationship between love and faith, and between success and happiness. (Joo You-shin)
