oldfilmsflicker on Carine Adler's "Under The Skin"
Adler's break came when the British Film Institute asked her to develop her short film Touch and Go into a full-length feature. The result was Under the Skin, the screenplay for which took her two years to write. According to Richard Armstrong in The Rough Guide to Film, "What distinguishes her small oeuvre is the fusion of her protagonists' desire and their sense of inferiority."
