  • Movies which could interest naturists

    I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but inspired by whitestokes post about Les Textiles, do you have movies with naturist themes to recommend, which could interest other naturists?

    I have one, it is titled "Lepota poroka", in English " The beauty of Sin" or "The beauty of Vice". Maybe some art video rentals have that movie, or maybe you can even find it on Ebay.

    It is an old ex-Yugoslav movie from 1986 and it was a very popular in those days, I think it was even showed in cinemas in some European countries. I even saw it on air on some German TV stations.

    The story of the movie is phenomenal and in the leading role plays Mira Furlan, an ex-Yugoslav superstar from the 80's, now living in the US. Maybe some of you remember her as the Minbari Ambassador Delenn in the sci-fi television series Babylon 5. Most recently she can be seen playing the character Danielle Rousseau in the ABC television series Lost. For the role in The Beauty of Sin Mira Furlan won the Zlatna arena (ex-Yugoslavia's equivalent of an Oscar) for best actress in 1986.

    Anyway, the movie starts in the mountains of Montenegro (part of ex-Yugoslavia) where people have lived by strict and Draconian laws for centuries, almost untouched by modern civilization. Mira plays a young woman Jaglika who, together with her husband, is going to seek the fortune on the more liberal coast where their wealthy godfather finds her a job as a maid in the naturist resort. Jaglika's puritan ethic is so strong that she can't make love to her husband unless she kept her clothes on and her face covered, so you can imagine how she feels in a naturist resort. Now, she gears up her courage and starts off valiantly to do her maid's job -- and the struggle between her past and the influence of the liberated couples in the naturist resort begins. Hundreds of naked bodies and atmosphere of joie d'vivre make the husband and wife question their rigid way of life. Her softly dawning awareness of her own sensuality and his lack of understanding and inability to cope with it opens a Pandora's box. She soon meets a couple and gets intrigued by their liberalism... The move doesn't have a happy end...
    It is an utterly incredible, beautiful, funny, tragic and heartbreaking film, and I would definitively recommend it to anyone. If you get a chance, don't miss it!

      I remember this movie, it played on a spaciality channel in Canada. I thought it was very good. I wish I could find it in DVD format to see it again.

        Oh yeah, I purchase this movie a long time ago on ebay, about three years ago I think. Although, I have now seen that there are DVD copies out there, from when I brought my copy video tape version.

        But to stick with the topic, my opinion about this film, is half in half. The movie is pretty much base as a drama, instead of how Les Textiles was made as comedy category. Also the naturists segments of this film, was a little bit to much against the wholesome values of naturism, with some of those misleading sex scene, but all there were only a few them misleading scene anyway. I guess the whole idea for Mira Furlan character, was to come out of that prudent shell, she was in.



        Although, I will say watching the old rerun's of Babylon 5 Sci-Fi TV show, put's Mira Furlan in a totally different kind of light.
