Nude Tuesday

Nude Tuesday is an absurdist comedy about a couple that spends a week at a new-age retreat in a bid to save their marriage.

When middle-aged suburban couple, Laura and Bruno are gifted a remote couples’ retreat for their anniversary, they decide to give their failing marriage one last shot before calling it quits.

Arriving in an idyllic sanctuary nestled in the mountains, Laura and Bruno uncomfortably enter a world of laughter workshops, tantric dance, sexual liberation and emotional animals, helmed by the charismatic guru Bjorg Rassmussen. When new temptations start to take hold, the couple are pushed to the brink forcing them to look within to find what they really want. But will they bare all to get it?

Told in a made-up language, in a fictional land, NUDE TUESDAY is a universal story of love and miscommunication, misinterpretation and reconnection, reminding us that love laid bare, needs no translation.
