Well-made film
20 May 2017 | by smithellie1966See all my reviews

I have just watched it on Netflix. I've yet to name a Spanish movie that I did not really like. May be it was "Leaving" (2009), Partir (original title), which I think is an exception, for Sergi López was a miscast. Everyone's acting in The Next Skin, including Sergi López were very good. I was really impressed with Àlex Monner performance. The film kept me engaged from the first minute through the very end. The tension was building up nicely and kept me guessing what the next scene was going to bring. I deeply cared about the characters. The ending was totally different from what I thought it would be. Overall The Next skin is a nicely made film I recommend to watch.
