NAKED OPERA

Director: Angela Christlieb

Luxembourg, Germany 2013, colour, 85 minutes

 

“Naked Opera” tells the story of a man with many faces. Marc is talented, intelligent, eloquent and wealthy but has suffered from an incurable illness from childhood. On the tracks of Don Giovanni he is permanently on the lookout for the perfect staging for his life and the perfect production of his favorite opera. Each weekend he escapes his everyday life by travelling the world in search of the ultimate “Don Giovanni” performance. Marc surrounds himself with beautiful young men, stays at the best hotels in the world, and enjoys the pleasures of life.

Director Angela Christlieb accompanies Marc on a journey from Luxembourg to Venice during which Marc falls in love with a young porno actor. In “Naked Opera” she succeeds in making a confrontational as well as intimate portrait of a tragic and fascinating person. “Naked Opera” is visually impressive - a film immersed in both a brilliant intellect and a hedonistic universe.
