Because this will be something of a discussion I will begin with my recommendation and follow with what I see as the things that may help you to appreciate this movie.

iNaked uses real events, a leading artist in the modern People's Republic of China played by himself, and one of his most famous sculptural exhibits to make direct comments on events in the PRC and on the fragility of life especially as lived by those on the financial edge. This is an art house type production. It seems roughly edited with blank screens and interruptions in the sound. Or these may all be deliberate effects. All of it has a crude feel, but also seems the more real for it. Acting is very low key with some delivery seeming too underplayed. Some of this may have do with Chinese film conventions, and my uncertain understanding of the director's intentions. The image of naked and nervous Chinese farmers huddled one at a time before a giant artistic rendering of Chairman Mao will no doubt launch 100's of film studies papers. Ultimately, I cannot give a full review of the artistic techniques of this movie.

That said; I enjoyed watching iNaked. The story is dramatic and told directly. I felt that I was watching real people some trying to act, rather than all actors some trying to be real people. There is little to prepare you for the final outcome. Mostly I enjoyed getting some sense of what modern China looks like as capitalism emerges. Capitalism is notoriously indifferent to the fates of people and that has to be part of the message of this movie.

Background, in historic order
The original Pygmalion is a sculptor who creates an ivory statue of a woman then falls in love with it. Aphrodite turns the statue into a real woman and the artist and statue-Galeta live happily ever after.

Don't trust the titillating and totally irrelevent photo on the DVD cover.
This great documentary-like movie has nothing to do with sex.
It's about about the hard life of migrant workers in Beijing -no fiction here-
and the censorship against graffiti artists ( the one we see on the cover photo made the news)
and the demolition of old buildings by speculators.
Worth seeing, if interested in China.

This is a movie for serious students of evolving Chinese culture. It is existentialism cinema at the best we are going to get out of China. If the name Joseph A. Schumpeter doesn't ring a bell; don't waste your money. I can just hear Schumpeter reviewing this movie (and the Chinese)!!!

I'm really not sure why I really liked this film. The acting was ok and the characters not clearly defined but still this was a nice watch. if you like subject matters that are totally foreign to you then this will be an enjoyable film
