Incredibly well made and a piece of art.
31 March 2015 | by AbdAllahMonirSee all my reviews

One of the most amazingly well made short films I've ever seen... discussing the consequences on the love life of a couple after the boyfriend takes off his skin and their social life. This movie is a real life piece of art that we see come to live, interact, communicate, love and smile. This was a very great decision of the director Ben Aston which made a character that should be frightening ,very adoring and lovable. The scenes are very intimate and there is a lot of great shots that tells so many stories inside of its details. Acting is so great, especially from the amazing Anne Maguire, who had the emotional side of the film on her, but with her great acting and her superb skills in the voice over as a narrator ,she really holds the film together. One of my favorite short films I've ever seen and beautiful made by a creative director.
