Storyline

In the mountains of Montenegro people have lived by strict and Draconian laws for centuries, almost untouched by modern civilization. However, a young couple are going to seek their fortune on the more liberal coast and there they find jobs in the nudist colony. Hundreds of naked bodies and atmosphere of joie d'vivre make the husband and wife question their rigid way of life. Written by Dragan Antulov <dragan.antulov@altbbs.fido.hr>

Not too bad
19 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

When a shy young married woman from a small village is "pushed" to go to work as a maid for a nudist resort, she discovers the kind of activities and freedoms she never knew existed and is eventually drawn into that world herself when she falls in love with a vibrant English couple who stays at the resort, which of course, will change her and will bring serious consequences on her former life.

Unlike what the summary sounds like, this is definitely not an x-rated adult movie or something like that... This movie is basically a story of an old-fashioned strict society clashing with the modern lifestyle of the west. What I liked most about this movie is that it's very honest, and Jaglika's innocence is indeed well played and very endearing, she makes the whole movie work. Though I'm usually not a big fan of these kinds of films, I could really relate to it and understand the motivations behind the different characters. It may not be the most fascinating foreign film out there (or even in the top 100), but it's an interesting look into a different culture (whichever one you choose to view as "different"). 7/10
