Three couples with varying degrees of success in both financial and romantic matters find they know relatively little about themselves or their respective partners. Successful stockbroker Dylan and his gorgeous wife, Charlotte, host a dinner party at their lavish apartment for two other pairs of friends, the recently separated Felix and Emilia and the seemingly happy Boris and Annette. Felix and Emilia had decided to attend the dinner as a couple, though each still has unresolved feelings towards the other. Meanwhile, Annette and Boris are on the verge of becoming engaged, though something seems to be preventing this from happening. As the night goes on, several topics are discussed -- ranging from happy memories from the past to sexual relationships. At the height of the sex conversation, an impromptu bet is made that the two intact couples would not be able to identify their respective lovers by touching their naked bodies while blindfolded. Taking the bet, Boris, Annette, Dylan, ...
Nackt is the story of three couples, one of which just broke up, one that seems to be about to and one perfectly okay. They are all friends and from time to time they gather to talk about everything.
One time they gather for dinner at the second couple's "mansion" - the husband became rich with his business. We see each couple as they prepare themselves for the party and learn a lot about their relationships.
At the dinner they get to talking about recognizing each other's peer with closed eyes and decide to try it (thus the title "Nackt"=naked in German). Nothing more to be spoiled by me. Watch it.
We get really deep into the relationships of these young couples, their love, their problems and the way they try to overcome them. The movie got us thinking and probably will get you as it doesn't stick to the surface but lets its characters talk about every minor detail.
The actors are quite famous in Germany and deliver a good performance. I give it 8 out of 10.
