After Emilia (Heike Makatsch) and Felix (Benno Fürmann) broke up, Charlotte (Nina Hoss) and Dylan (Mehmet Kurtulus) think about to disperse too. Only Annette (Alexandra Maria Lara) and Boris (Jürgen Vogel) seem to be the perfect couple. All of them meet up to a fancy diner at Charlotte's and Dylan's apartment. As they sit in for a small talk, Felix places a bet, where a naked couple shouldn't be able to identify each other. After a while the others get into the act...
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.
