Not too bad
When a shy young married woman from a small village is "pushed" to go to work as a maid for a nudist resort, she discovers the kind of activities and freedoms she never knew existed and is eventually drawn into that world herself when she falls in love with a vibrant English couple who stays at the resort, which of course, will change her and will bring serious consequences on her former life.
Unlike what the summary sounds like, this is definitely not an x-rated adult movie or something like that... This movie is basically a story of an old-fashioned strict society clashing with the modern lifestyle of the west. What I liked most about this movie is that it's very honest, and Jaglika's innocence is indeed well played and very endearing, she makes the whole movie work. Though I'm usually not a big fan of these kinds of films, I could really relate to it and understand the motivations behind the different characters. It may not be the most fascinating foreign film out there (or even in the top 100), but it's an interesting look into a different culture (whichever one you choose to view as "different"). 7/10
