TIFF 2006 Day 7: Summer Palace and Un Crime

Summer PalaceHao Lei gets very naked very often in Summer Palace. I will try to summarize all the nudity:

1. Possible quick flash when Lei’s panties are removed during first sex scene.
2. Lei is naked but we mostly just see her left breast when she has sex in the dark.
3. Lei has sex again and we again mostly just see her left breast but we do see glimpses of her right breast.
4. We see both breasts as Lei is lying in bed topless.
5. Lei lies in bed naked and we see everything including a very hairy bush. She gets up and walks around a bit too but that is shot from the waist up.
6. Lei removes her top and we see her breasts as she teaches her friend how to masturbate.
7. Lei has a long sex scene and we see breasts and ass.
8. We see Lei’s breasts as she lies in the bath.

That’s all that I can remember. Her friend Li Ti, played by Hu Ling, also gets naked in several scenes. The first sex scene is very dark but we do see glimpses of Ling’s left breast. Later Ling is topless and cutting someone’s hair. Unfortunately, we only see Ling’s left breast because of the position of the camera. However, right after Ling has a long sex scene and we see her full frontal nude.

In Un Crime, Emmanuelle Beart has several sex scenes. In the first one, we see Emmanuelle’s breasts and ass as she has sex in various positions. Later, Emmanuelle has sex again and we see her breasts. Finally, near the end Emmanuelle is ordered to undress in the back of a car and we again see her breasts. Emmanuelle then has sex but because of the fog on the windows we don’t see much.

TIFF 2006 Day 6: Alatriste and Cashback

AlatristeAbout 92 minutes into Alatriste, you see Elena Anaya lying in bed naked. It is a pretty long scene and you can see her boobs clearly and part of her ass. You also might be able to see some bush but it is more likely just shadow.

In Cashback, you see Hayley-Marie Coppin fully nude in a flashback sequence the main character Ben has. You also see several woman including Irene Bagach, Christine Fuller, Kinvara Balfour, Cherie Nichole Bradley and several others in various states of undress during a scene where Ben stops time. They re-used the footage from the short film version of Cashback for these two scenes. They did add a bit to the frozen time scene however including a bit with a topless Keeley Hazell.

Later on, we see Ben visit a strip bar. There is an older woman (in her 30’s) dancing topless on stage with some tassels to cover her nipples. I didn’t catch her name in the credits. The stripper then helps Ben hire a private stripper who is played by Janine-May Tinsley. You see her naked except for a thong when she performs a dance at a party.

TIFF 2006 Day 5: Little Children and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

Little ChildrenFirst, the bad news: Jennifer Connelly does not get naked in Little Children. The good news is Kate Winslet does. She doesn’t do any full frontal nudity though and it may have just been me but her areolae (nipples) looked a lot more brownish.

The first scene is a little less than an hour into the movie. We see Kate up against the wall having sex. She is naked but all you really see is her right boob. A couple of minutes later, they show Kate getting up after having sex and you see her ass and a bit of her boobs when she turns around. Later on during a book club meeting, Kate has a couple of flashbacks of her having sex. You see a few more glimpses of Kate naked during these quick flashback scenes.

The director also mentioned that they did film the scenes where Kate and her lover go out of town together but it was cut out of the film. Hopefully they are on the DVD.

Sarah Buxton plays internet model Slutty Kay who Kate’s husband is a fan of. You see her topless in several photos.

In All the Boys Loves Mandy Lane, Amber Heard plays the title character who all the boys at school are obsessed with. Unfortunately, Amber didn’t get naked. You do however see her bare back and partial views of her boobs from behind as someone spies on her while she changes. Her friend Chloe, played by Whitney Able, did get naked however. You first see partial views of Whitney’s ass as she is sitting on the toilet in a public restroom. Another girl sees Whitney and remarks that she should trim her thick bush. Subsequently, you see more partial views of Whitney’s ass as she sits on the toilet and trims her bush when she gets back. Later on we see Whitney remove her top and reveal her tiny boobs. Whitney spots someone outside her room and heads to the window to give them a better view.

TIFF 2006 Day 4: Shortbus

ShortbusShortbus is probably the most controversial (sexually) film screening at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. The sex is explicit and real but unfortunately most of it is gay sex.

The main female character is played by Sook-Yin Lee who is not pretty IMO. I also personally dislike her from her days as a VJ. Her boobs are small and kinda saggy and she has a very hairy bush. When we first see Sook-Yin, she is getting eaten out by her husband in the opening montage. She is naked but we don’t see anything explicit. Then there are a couple of cuts to different angles and positions of them having sex and we can see real penetration in several shots. The film cuts away to the other characters and when it comes back to Sook-Yin, we see her give her husband a handjob first, and then a blowjob. The blowjob is shot from behind however. Then we see some more of them having sex.

Sook-Yin also has a couple of masturbation scenes. The first is with various toys and we might be able to see some penetration. Later we see Sook-Yin masturbate in an isolation tank. She is wearing shorts though so we only see glimpses of her hairy bush. Then near the end Sook-Yin masturbates on a park bench. There may be a couple of explicit shots there but it is very quick. You can not see her breasts in any of these except for the first where she is wearing a babydoll that is see-through.

The other major female character is played by Lindsay Beamish. She wears a couple of revealing outfits but doesn’t get naked or do anything explicit. There may have been a nipple slip in a scene whtere Lindsay is riding Sook-Yin Lee but it is doubtful.

Lastly, there is lots of explicit nudity during the orgy scenes at the Shortbus club. Again, lots of gay sex is shown. They did focus on one younger hetero couple however. The woman is played by Shanti Carson and we see her having sex doggy style and missionary if I remember correctly. There was also a couple of shots of some fat dancers dancing on the stage with only tassels on. Thankfully they were out of focus shots.

On Day 3 of the festival I saw Woman on the Beach, and just my luck, it is Hong Sang-soo’s only film to be rated 15 instead of 18. All of his other films (The Day a Pig Fell Into a Well, The Power of Kangwon Province, Virgin Stripped Bare By Her Bachelors, On the Occassion of Remembering the Turning Gate, Woman is the Future of Man and Tale of Cinema) featured nudity. So hopefully this is just an anomaly and not the start of a trend.

Magdalena Mielcarz in Quo Vadis?

Here is a video of Magdalena Mielcarz from Quo Vadis?. There is no actual nudity in this scene but Magdalena is gorgeous. There is a long scene near the end of this film where Magdalena is topless while tied to a bull. Unfortunately there is very clever use of her hair to cover up. She also has a very hot non-nude scene in Sotto Falso Nome (Le Prix du D├ęsir) with Anna Mouglalis.

Quo Vadis? is an epic based on the book of the same name. This clip is from the extended TV version. There are a lot of unknown extras naked in this film during all the orgy and torture scenes. Malgorzata Foremniak, who you may know as Ash in the movie Avalon, also has a lengthy nude scene. The shorter movie edition is missing this scene and a few of the others.

Be sure to visit daily starting late next week as film festival nudity reviews return.

Nora Zehetner in Brick

This is a deleted scene from the region-1 Brick DVD available next week featuring Nora Zehetner. It is nice that they decided to put this on the DVD but if you look closely you will see that they blurred the area where her breasts are. You can see an uncensored but kinda weird nude scene with Nora in Conversations with Other Women. It is opening next week in select theatres or available now on DVD in Europe.

Angela Baraldi in Quo Vadis, Baby?

Here is a short video of Angela Baraldi from Quo Vadis, Baby?. Angela is a popular rock star in Italy and this is her acting debut. Fortunately, she is not shy and has quite a few nude scenes (including one in a deleted scene).

Some other info: ‘Quo vadis, baby?’ is actually a line from Last Tango in Paris, and that song playing in the background is ‘Vienna’ by Ultravox.

Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette

Here is a horrible quality clip of Kirsten Dunst covering her boobs in the upcoming Marie Antoinette.

As expected, Kirsten doesn’t show the goods in this movie. The one scene in the trailer where we see her character nude from the back is probably a body double. There is also the tease scene in the trailer with Kirsten only wearing a fan. Unfortunately, that leads to a non-nude love scene. However, there may be some see-through scenes including a scene where Kirsten gets out of a bath wearing a wet nightgown and also perhaps a bit at the end of this clip after she gets dressed.
