Sam’s Blog – Under The Skin

Posted in Sam's Blog by - Apr 10, 2014

We begin with a prick of light, which grows and grows until suddenly, we are in a darkened highway in Scotland, following a biker. We watch as he stops, goes into the bushes, and retrieves the body of a woman, tossing it into a van parked on the side of the road.

This new woman, who later …

“What a great thing… to be so attuned to your own unhappiness.” This quote, spoken by a man interested in an unhappily married woman, is the hinge of this film’s plot… because the first step of solving a problem is recognizing that it exists. Perhaps this is exactly what Birmingham couple Nick and Meg need as they return to Paris to recapture the feeling of their honeymoon 30 years prior. Roger Michel (Notting Hill, Morning Glory) helms a delightful yet tumultuous picture of a weekend of petty bickering, brutal honesty, and romantic cynicism through these two characters, who force themselves …
