An Interesting Movie-nice themes different context
I have seen the movie a few years ago and I liked it. The context is naturalism and nudism but the film is not about this and I am surprised the few commentators haven't got it. It is a social movie about conformity and liberation, love and tension, desire and choices, gender, generations, social differentiation etc. Actually, I reflected more on these themes through this movie rather than through other more "serious" movies.
A last note, Muhart Magali, is a very beautiful and sexy lady that as a drama face stands apart.
