ENG - For You Naked is an untraditional, intimate and beautifully told love story between one of Scandinavia’s most highly regarded modern painters and a young Brazilian dancer. Two men with a dark past desperately searching for true love. They get in touch on Skype and can’t communicate in any language, yet they decide to meet and find out if they can fall in love. This is the beginning of an unpredictable love story, humorous and warm with dark undertones. We closely follow their struggle for a happy existence and their search for a life where someone loves you – regardless of how vastly difficult it can be to love one self.

Motivation: ”A generous and loving depiction of a strong meeting between emotions and mind.

With beautiful and poetic images we follow the main characters close-up through successes and setbacks.”
