Movie Review: The Nudels of Nudeland (2022)


In a really original story that is naked and not scared, Meet TIM CHIZMAR, he is loud and naked, in America this is how you know he is Tim Chizmar. Meet LUCZ PADILLA, she’s quieter, religious and naked, she works at a designer fashion brand in Mexico. Their lives are turned upside down when these two young nudists are deported to the country NUDELAND, where they can finally live with others who are not clothed. But even among the unique personalities and exaggerated characters (like an inverted Flasher running around) can our heroes ever really get rid of the shame and anxiety inside and allow themselves to be free? Of course, nudity is not obscene, but it can come with mental baggage. This movie has heart, humor, love and the best fans in the world


Tim Chizmar wrote and directed The Nudels of Nudeland. Tim Chizmar has another film on the way out, called Hell’s Coming for You starring Dillion Dillagaf. Chizmar has also written and interviewed the iconic Clive Barker. The Nudels of Nudeland opens with Juliana Acosta praying and struggling with a kind of man or woman. This movie is about the lives of nudists. Some people see nudity as nothing more than sexual. Some people see nudity as art, some people do not care in any way.

The film shows the different sides of being a nudist. Some people have to hide this and some people are okay with it. We meet several of the cast including: Joseph Adams, Julie Antti, Jeremiah Benjamin, Re’Shell Brown, Al Burke, Tim Chizmar portraying himself, Phillip Fayne also portraying himself, Joe Filippone, Jasmine Gilmore, Eloise Gordon, Kelly Helm, Cynthia Holbach, Rolf Holbach, Katya Jakanov, Sarag Jane, Virginia Lukei, Michelle Moraveg, Melody Munson, Jeremy Pace, Bill Pacer, Adrienne Pearson, Troy Peterson, Carol Powel, Andy Shmuck and more.

Tim’s boyfriend wants to break up with him because he’s naked all the time. Tim’s voices in his head are also wrestlers. He has to deal with the police and constantly explain why he is naked. Officer D. Mann (Al Burke) shows up and decides to send Tim to Nudeland, a place where everyone is naked, free and happy.

This film feels like it was such a collaboration despite Tim Chizmar writing and directing the film. I had the opportunity to interview Tim Chizmar and he is one of the most positive and hardworking people I have ever talked to.

Okay, let’s take a moment to talk about how adorable the dog is. Moreover, the dog does not care at all about the naked people. They go back and forth with the stories and how different lifestyles are. Lucz Padilla (Juliana Acosta) also has the “brutal” thoughts … via a wrestler.

The laughing back-tracks and police sirens that play when Officer Mann shows up are funny. “Is not it against the law? Forces us to think?” Imagine that! It’s crazy how thinking for yourself can get you in trouble. Brady Alisauskas portrays the Prime Minister’s Assistant and Stephane Deschenes portrays Prime Minister Pierre Mustache.

We meet Journey (Re’Shell Brown), and the fun group at Nudeland. Mondo Mann (Jeremiah Benjamin) will be the first naked skateboarder. Julie Antti portrays Barb Wire, she’s a walk. Lucz shows up at Nudeland after her meeting with Officer Mann. They also mention Pennsylvania, where Tim Chizmar grew up.

The scenarios in this movie are funny. It’s nice to see nudity embraced and not seen in the typical way, like oh MY GOSH who is a naked person. Jeremiah Benjamin doing yoga in a hammock just makes me want to go out and buy a hammock right now.

Lucz tries to explain her job situation, which has been a nightmare for her. George Marshal (Rolf Holbach) gives Lucz a chance to get a job. UH! “Live cash”. That’s what we’re expected to do, otherwise you know we’re losers or something. You grow up, go to school, you do not learn about real life unless you live real life, I learned about paying bills and taxes thanks to my mother who constantly works and pays bills.

But we are expected to go to college after school, some people backpacking through Europe or something? Do people still do that? Then you get a job that you may or may not love or even like, and that’s life. Then you get married, have children and pay bills.

Tim and Lucz get to know each other. They have things in common. Life is fun because there is so much more that we do not see everything, we do not always live right. And … yes, I’m aware that this movie is not horror, but Tim Chizmar has done a lot for the horror genre, and he’s a horror fan. His Blair Witch Project was such a random reference. He did well with this film, it reminded me Clerks.
