Movie Info

British filmmaker Danny Boyle offers a darkly comic glimpse of life in Britain in this short feature (shot on digital video equipment) produced for the BBC. Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise concerns Tommy Rag (Timothy Spall), a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman whose passion for salesmanship firmly outstrips his scruples. Tommy's new partner on his route is Pete (Michael Begley), a younger man who has dreams of working in the music industry. Pete's girlfriend, however, demands that he get a steady job, and has decided to withhold sex until Pete starts bringing home a steady paycheck. Tommy coaches Pete in his ruthless and shameless sales techniques, and together they start selling an impressive number of vacuums; Tommy thinks they may both be up for Salesman of the Year, but then Pete has to consider what could be a better offer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Vacuuming Completely Nude in Paradise

This movie rocked. Combines door-to-door vacuum sales with techno music. That's pretty original. It's fitting that I'm working on Glen Gary, Glen Ross is my scene study class. Salesmen are crazy.

While Boyle sometimes veers into the erratic with his video cameras getting angles all over the place as if covering someone's breakdown, it's Timothy Spall who walks away with this picture (sure, Michael Begley doesn't slum it either).

This movie is what I imagine would happen if someone told British sketch comedy writers to make a movie on the theme of "Death of a Salesman" without having ever seen the play. It's bizarre, manic, and hilarious! Timothy Spall continues to bring humanity to what could be a completely despicable character.
