Some countries have a long tradition for making movies about children. I do not mean children as lovely and charming little dolls, but children as genuine human individuals, with basically the same kinds of emotions as adults. Sweden is one of these countries, and this film is a good example. However, the actors consist of three age groups: the middle-aged adults, who are little more than extras; the two teenagers, who also have a subsidiary place; and the 11-year-old boy and girl Peiter and Anna, who constitute the centre. The director has devoted all his energy to the children, and it must be admitted that his person directing of the two other groups is mediocre. But I, for one, am willing to forgive this shortcoming, because the performance of the children is so much better. Both the director and the children, in particular the girl, deserve praise for the outcome.
Anna, her parents and her younger brother live on an island. Peiter's parents are divorced, and only during one summer week will he stay with his father, who likewise lives on this island. Hence, the children will be together for no more than seven days a year. Nevertheless, they had been friends for years. Unfortunately, in the summer that this movie is about, they have difficulty in getting in real touch. Day after day they fail. Finally all seven days have gone, and the gap or whatever it was that prevented full contact, is still not closed. Though when time is up Peiter is permitted to stay for one more day. And during 'the eighth day' (= the Swedish name of the film) they succeed.
What did they do together during the week? Many things are not very conspicuous. While they are standing outside a cheap café, Peiter boasts that he can manage any task. Anna gives him the task of fetching the thing inside the café, which she is thinking of. Peiter goes inside, looks at everything. But then he asks a certain guest to rise from his chair. When the guest has done so, he takes this chair and brings it outside to Anna. This was indeed the right thing, and this chair will re-appear several times until the end of the movie. - - - On another occasion Peiter boasts that he is not afraid of being locked up in a desolate tower for a few hours. Anna closes the lock on the outside. But when she comes home her parents prevent her from going out again during this day and the following night. Peiter remained alone in the tower for the entire night.
Eleven years is a 'between-age'. Children may begin to have an embryonic feeling that opposite-sex friendship is not quite the same as same-sex friendship. Perhaps this was the reason of Peiter's and Anna's difficulties, but also of their final success. On the eighth day they show their sex organs to each other; and they are neither motivated by curiosity, nor by indecent interest. This is the only external sign of anything they could not have done during the preceding years.
I think this movie may be appreciated by anyone liking to see children presented as genuine human individuals (as they are indeed), and with the difficulties this involves. - Max Scharnberg, IMDbNude scenes:

The main story of this film is enfolded between opening and closing sequences of a youthful Adam and Eve reliving their famous moment in the Garden of Eden. In the central episode, two young people in love are kept separate by their families. The boy has a monstrous father who lives in a castle and who may or may not actually be a vampire. The girl lives a reasonably prosperous middle-class existence. When the boy's parents die, it looks as though they might be able to get together, but only for a little while. This highly mannered and symbolic Mexican film was made by Rafael Corkidi, the cinematographer for the equally peculiar film, El Topo. - Clarke Fountain, All Movie GuideNude scenes:

With the Visions of Europe project, Lars Von Trier and his Zentropa company came up with the idea of 25 directors from 25 different countries in the European Union making a short film pertaining to Europe, with each film lasting around 5 minutes. Peter Greenaway made the United Kingdom's entry, entitled The European Showerbath. It shows us naked men and women of differing sizes, each with the flag of their country painted on their flesh. The first person who enters the shower is a portly man with a German flag painted on him. Next it's a lady with large breasts with the French flag displayed on her. Other people/countries enter the shower, seeming to follow in an order of importance and influence. Eventually the shower is crowded, and the small countries stand on the outside looking in. Then the shower stops. It's too late for them. The music by Architorti compliments.
"Fifteen countries of Europe, brightly identified with their national flags body-painted on their vulnerable naked flesh, and personified in their political economic history by older or younger, fatter or thinner corporeality, step one by one, optimistically into the warm showerbath of the European Community. First the original six; sturdy if plump-bellied Germany, voluptuous if a little over-extrovert France, young introspective Belgium, confident if a little vain Luxembourg, self-effacing Holland and elderly if a little frivolous Italy, followed, in order of membership by the remaining nine, each with their own physical identities, making up a community self-revealing in their camaraderie, all trying to maximise their position in the European warm water community, shoving a little, flirting a little, laughing and joking, if a little self-consciously, exuberantly demonstrating their togetherness a little too over-eagerly, enjoying mutual, frank, self-exposing, self-revelation, all dipping their heads and limbs and exposed bodies into the limited water-shower of benefits. - petergreenaway.co.ukNude scenes:

In this eerie, atmospheric tale, a young woman is on a train when she sees some people she thinks she knows from her childhood. On arriving home, her husband tells her that a certain countess has died. At that point, the film cuts to a scene of the countess singing in a mausoleum while the visual image of the graveyard's many tombstones passes before one's eyes. Back home, the husband -- also a "father-figure" -- is looking over his collection of wooden angels. Some time elapses, and he surreptitiously sees a thief come down through the chimney, steal some things, and then leave. To combat any recurrence, he builds an iron, escape-proof cage around the fireplace, and then goes away on a trip. When he comes back, he finds the thief dead in the cage. Thus far, the camera has only shown the husband in profile or from the back. Then there is another story about a young girl, with a spiteful, nasty mother, who is trying to cope with her own attraction to a man. When she grows up, she either commits suicide or manages to leave the past behind her. Is this little girl the same married woman on the train at the beginning of the film? In the final, dramatic scenes, the viewers see the husband full-face for the first time, as he confronts his wife. - Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie GuideNude scenes:
A ten or eleven year old girl was walking around with her bathrobe open, showing everything, then she slides down a staircase handrail naked. There's also a mention (but not shown) of the girl utilizing a bike for such sexual gratification experiments, as well as training her pet dog to lick her. Later she's raped by her 15 year old brother.
Towards the end the girl gets naked again and here we get about two minutes of her stripping and changing and looking at herself in a mirror, mainly from behind. She then jumps from a balcony to her death, followed by a narrator's voice telling about how her dog tries in vain to wake her up by licking her between her legs.Added:
