Under the skin is ...
10 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I guess the title could not be more revealing to what this short movie is about. Obviously the poster also adds a note to that and should be an indicator if this offends you or makes you sick to your stomach. If you can't handle that, do not watch it, simple as that. The movie is not trying to fool you into watching it, it tells you what's inside (if you forgive the pun).

It's kind of like the saying, that tells us, that it's the inside that counts. And the movie goes deeper than just touching the ... skin of it. Obviously there is a lot of clichés that are being dissected (you can do lots of those, though the jokes of the movie are more sophisticated than that, because the movie is trying to tell us something). Love is touching ... and that can hurt ... more than you know
