The Naked and the Dead, 27 May 2007
Author: kenjha

Low-budget film about a Frenchman enslaved by Indians in 16th century Brazil. So low-budget that no costumes are used - the performers are naked...OK supposedly that's not due to the budget but for authenticity. The men are seen in all their natural glory while the women wear G-strings. The nudity is rather distracting, specially while trying to read the subtitles. The film does not have much of a plot. It just wanders aimlessly and seems to go on far longer than its 84 min length. Magalhaes is attractive as the tribeswoman who becomes the "wife" of the Frenchman. There's a lot of violence. Given the title, the fate of the naked French guy is never in doubt.
