Amazon natives for whom nudity would be commonplace.

of the movie and just went about the business of living a life without
clothes. There was an excellent, symbolic scene at the end of the movie

(1971)Gabriel Araujo, Gabriel Archanjo,
This delicious black comedy, set in the
jungles of Brazil, tells the story of a French explorer who tries in vain
to be accepted by the tribe of cannibals who has captured him. Despite
the ultimate fate of the titular Frenchman, there is very little violence
in this film. There is no sex either. Throughout the film,
the Amazon Indians and the assimilating Frenchman are depicted wearing
the traditional costume of Amazonians in the 16th century: nothing.
A great film if you can find it.

and disappears again.
Kate Winslet swims nude in a lake.
(1985) Richard Gere runs naked through
the streets of Jerusalem.
and the Sorceress
This was a wonderful movie that should be watched by adults AND children
together. The "parental alert" is absurd, though. It would be sad if parents
prevented their children from viewing this movie just because many of the
characters appear partially or wholly nude, as people traditionally "dressed"
in warm/hot regions of the world. Produced in France and Senegal, it received
only very limited release in the U.S.. The director refused to draw clothes
on the nude children and cover adult breasts.
Worthwhile looking for if you have kids.

(2001) The character that is nude is that
way because he lost his clothing because he couldn't pay his gambling debt.
He is seen walking down the road and then casually talking to people about

window. Also, a scene where one of the girls, Stella is taking a bath in

talk with him. A few sex scenes but tastefully done.
Picture Show, The
(1971) Lots of male and female nudity
as they swim at a pool party. Set in the 50's.
(1986) This movie is a pro-naturism film
on a serious, philosophical level, presenting naturism as the ultimate
metaphor for personal freedom and self-respect. Mira Furlan is a
Croatian movie actress who is best known in the US for her role as Delenn
on the TV series Babylon 5. There is a great deal of nudity as one
would find in a naturist environment; this is a severe cultural shock
to Furlan's character and other housemaids like her who come from the restrictive
local culture. But Furlan finds the freedom of naturism an irresistible
contrast to the imprisoning standards she has known. Ultimately she
makes the symbolic gesture of shedding her own clothing, and is welcomed
by the naturist couple whose freedom and naturalness she has most closely

and opens it to a crowd of people. They see him naked and cheer him. A
naked female is in the room with him as he argues with his clothes mother
who seems unfazed.
(1985) Nudity in a sci-fi/horror is not
unusual but this fare typically has just enough nudity to bump up the rating
to an R to appeal to a mature audience. What was unique was a generous
amount of matter of fact nudity that was integral to the story line. The
alien beings were able take on human form but unable to assume the appearance
of a clothed human.
(1992) There is a nude beach scene and
later, the three main characters are shopping at a nudist grocery store
where everyone else is nude too.

1990, has no nudity whatsoever, but contains more violence.
(1937) Jane Wyatt has an innocent nude

South Australia. Shows nudity as something very natural. The cast
pretty much covered the full spectrum of body shapes and the appearance
of not-so-gorgeous people made the nudity realistic.
An adolescent Jay North is talking to Sajid Khan while drying off by a
fire after a swim. This innocent scene would have been unheard of only
a year or two earlier in this basic children's movie.
RobMorrow, Laura Linney, Craig Sheffer, Rose Gregorio. An artist with Tourette
Syndrome falls in love with his best friend's pregnant girlfriend. There
is some nudity but not sexually (women posing for Lyle Maze, the artist)
and some bad language. What struck me most about the movie was the innocence
in the love portion of the story. It's beautiful and complicated like love
tends to be. Go rent it! :)
(1992) Stars Sean Connery and Lorraine
Bracco. It takes place in the rain forest and all the local women
There's a humorous scene where all of the
women are preparing flowers on a table. The camera pans down the table

cabin in the early 1900's. There are two boys who are outside and washing/playing
with a water hose. Both boys are fully and frontally naked. Later in the
film one of these boys and another friend are caught in a downpouring rain.
When they reach the cabin they are undressed by two women while standing
near the fireplace. These nude scenes are very normal and there is no hint
of any sexuality or suggestiveness. The film is entirely suitable
for children of any age.
(2002) Anna Pudlowska, Barbara Gasior,
Agnieszka Pasko. This movie is about an office in which everybody works
naked. Nobody ever mentions it so everybody thinks it is perfectly normal
that everything just hangs there. A nice concept, and although the implementation
isn't anything brilliant, it is still a memorable film.

Camps! Actually Filmed in California's Largest Nudist Clubs!
Jodie Foster and Liam Neeson both have very positive nude scenes. Liam

(1984) John Hurt and Suzanna Hamilton
are great at portraying the social nude scenes in this movie.

this movie is rated R, I highly recommend it.

skinny-dipping. Charlton Heston stands naked in ape court. Mainstream movie

Tenuously based on the legends of Easter
Island, Chile, this story details a civil war between the two...
I have never seen so much nudity or near-nudity
in a film where it isn't sexualized. It's quite refreshing. We just get
to enjoy seeing the beautiful (and also ordinary) bodies of the characters
going about their business, like you might see in an old National Geographic
magazine.An overlooked gem of a film.
(1994)Marcello Mastroianni, Sophia Loren,
A fashion show in Paris draws the usual
bunch of people; designers, reporters, models, magazine editors... There

Contains a well acted scene with Julianne Moore having an argument with
Matthew Modine while totally at ease with her frontal nudity.
in the Dark, A
(1964) Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau.
A funny scene in a "nudist colony", where the bashful Clouseau must find

murder, they both leave naked. The sight of them driving through the streets
of Paris completely nude is priceless.

women falls in love with an accomplished lady more his age. Diane Keaton
