NAKED UNDER HEAVEN
by Tareco Pictures
“Naked Under Heaven may take the guise of a character drama or a comedy of manners,
but it is never anything less than riveting. This film trusts its audience’s intelligence; it’s a
treat to be pampered by genuine warmth on the screen. Bilowit has a firm, steady hand at
the helm, a clear eye for uncluttered composition, and an ear for music that is as
evocative as it is unexpected. Here is a welcome new voice.”
– Nat Chediak (Founder, Miami Film Festival)

NAKED UNDER HEAVEN
by Tareco Pictures
This is a movie in the tradition of film blanc:
“Some movies raise mental activity to a higher level of pleasure, even to
the extent of an epiphany. These films, which can be termed film blanc, as
they are almost a mirror image of film noir, take a lucid but tantalizing
approach that reveals only gradually, and never fully, what is happening.
By balancing narrative transparency and opacity, film blanc offers the
audience the constant pleasure of finding new clues and reshuffling them
into new patterns.”
(William Johnson, “Enigma Variations,” Film Comment v.33 Nov/Dec ‘97)
