NoBody's Perfect Photos

Movie Info

Disabled from birth due to the ravaging side effects of thalidomide, filmmaker Niko von Glasow embarks on a quest to find 11 others like him who are willing to pose for nude photographs illustrating the deformities that are just a normal part of their everyday lives. By photographing "thalidomiders" in their natural state, von Glasow offers onlookers the opportunity to witness just how the human body can respond to the drug without making the observer feel awkward about their curiosity, or the observed feel as if they're the object of intense scrutiny. Over the course of the film, the director speaks at length with his subjects about their experiences growing up, and their feelings about the project. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for NoBody's Perfect

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

A darkly funny and fascinating examination of body image, sexuality, and self-esteem.

Sep 1, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

An exemplar of fresh-air filmmaking that addresses the devastating legacy of the drug thalidomide with acidic wit and grumpy honesty.

Apr 16, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The film tastefully handles the sensitive subject, but it lacks the bite that a Michael Moore would have provided.

Apr 16, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

[Features] a slack, scattershot approach that ill serves the director's intermittently audacious film.

Apr 14, 2010 | Full Review…

Drop the impotent Michael Moore-esque exposé on the company who manufactured the drug, and this moving doc would, in fact, be perfect.

Time Out
Top Critic

The film is alternately hilarious, insightful and sad, and entirely allergic to sentimentality or easy platitudes.
