Under the Skin


UK 1997, 83 minutes
Dir. Carine Adler
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Drama / Independent, Sex


Aroview: After her mother's untimely death, a young woman bereaves through a series of casual sexual, and increasingly masochistic, encounters.

Samantha Morton captures the awkward paradox of the approval-seeking yet self-loathing little girl lost, in a highly subjective portrait, bearing the best and worst hallmarks of low-budget indie film - stylish, bold and personal yet occasionally self-indulgent.
