Guter und tiefsinniger Film
Ich liebe Filme die „Raum“ lassen für Interpretation. Auch ist es gelungen mit der Bildsprache in einer visuell ästhetischen Weise umzugehen. Kausalität und Rationalität werden nur in der äusseren Form aufrecht erhalten. So zeichnet den Film eine banale Alltags-Realität und die Laien-Darstellern aus. Diese ist gegen eine hoch ästhetisierte Atmosphäre und skurrile verstecke Welt gesetzt die fremd, kalt und bizarr wirkt. Scarlett’s Charakter bildet dabei die Brücke und ihr Charakter verliert sich in dieser Funktion. In meinen Augen ein Meisterwerk mit viel Raum für eigene Gedanken. Sicher eines dieser zeitlosen Werke die in jeder Lebensphase etwas anderes in einem ansprechen und auslösen.
Under the Skin (2013 film)
Under the Skin is a 2013 science fiction film directed by Jonathan Glazer and written by Glazer and Walter Campbell, loosely based on the 2000 novel by Michel Faber. It stars Scarlett Johansson as an otherworldly woman who preys on men in Scotland. The film premiered at Telluride Film Festival on 29 August 2013. It was released in the United Kingdom on 14 March 2014, North America on 4 April 2014, Switzerland on 23 July 2014, and worldwide on 10 August 2014.
Glazer developed Under the Skin for over a decade; he and co-screenwriter Walter Campbell pared it back from an elaborate, special effects-heavy concept to a sparse story focusing on an alien perspective of the human world. Most of the cast was chosen from applicants without previous acting experience, and many scenes were filmed with hidden cameras.
Under the Skin received acclaim for Johansson's performance, Glazer's direction, and Mica Levi's score. It received numerous accolades and awards; it was named the best film of the year by various critics and publications, was included in many best-of-the-decade lists, and was ranked 61st on the BBC's 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century list. Nevertheless, it was a box-office failure...
