Full Body Massage

1h 33m Drama, Romance 1995

An art dealer's usual masseur sends a substitute for her regular weekly massage. The two are both mutually attracted, and annoy one another a lot.

Nina (Mimi Rogers; Austin Powers, The Player), a successful but world-weary art dealer, unexpectedly finds that her regular masseur has sent a substitute, Fitch (Bryan Brown; Breaker Morant, Two Hands), to continue her weekly massage sessions. Fitch’s therapeutic caresses, while charged with sexual tension, gain emotional significance as the opinionated pair first clash, then bond while relaying thoughtful meditations on intimacy and human relationships. Free to discuss her life, hopes and failures, Nina is liberated from her confused world, indulging in a strange, erotic mysticism with her handy muse.

Brilliantly helmed by British director Nicolas Roeg (Walkabout, Bad Timing), Full Body Massage is a riveting, sophisticated portrait of sensual love.
