In the hypnotic, eroticising and hair-raising thriller Under The Skin, which has won 15 film awards and is praised to the skies by all film critics, shines Scarlett Johansson as alien Laura. In the Scottish landscape she seduces men to satisfy her hunger. After meeting a man with a rare facial condition, Laura becomes increasingly aware of her human body and is seized by doubt. Rarely have we seen an alien roaming the earth as the heroine does in this mind-expanding, horror fairy tale.
Using a beautiful, penetrating score and unforgettable images Director Jonathan Glazer gives the film a turn with an equally fascinating and poignant effect. Following the example of Kubrick, he leaves many things unnamed, whereby Under The Skin can be interpreted in different ways. As a result, you keep on turning the film over in your mind and it is sure to capture your imagination for years to come.
