Storyline

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, ...

Time capsule
8 April 2007 | by bob998See all my reviews

Doris Doerrie is one of those directors who leave no traces on my consciousness: when I see one of her films, I start forgetting it right away. I know I saw Men..., Happy Birthday!, Nobody Loves Me, yet I can't for the life of me remember the plots. She is far more interested in sociological analysis than in story-telling, so her stories are as flimsy as those of Godard.

Having said this, I must also say that the actors in Naked are very talented and they kept me watching this very silly story to the end. Alexandra Maria Lara is so promising; she's as impressive here as she was as Hitler's secretary in The Downfall. Her character, and Juergen Vogel's, are allowed to develop over the course of the film--we see they have stamina as a couple. Heike Makatsch, who started in TV as a VJ, showed some acting ability I didn't expect from her. Nina Hoss and Mehmet Kurtulus as the rich couple, got some acid into their performances.
