Sexy Beast and Birth director Jonathan Glazer’s magnificent Under the Skin (2013) is the story of an alien in human form. Part-road movie, part-science fiction, part-real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes. To celebrate the cinematic release of British filmmaker Glazer’s latest triumph – starring American actress Scarlett Johansson – next Friday (14 March), we’re giving away THREE Under the Skin prize bundles containing the official UK quad poster and CD soundtrack by Mica Levi, courtesy of the hardworking folks over at StudioCanal. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Here’s an extract from our review of the film at last year’s London Film Festival: Under the Skin follows an alien disguised as a young woman (Johansson) driving around Glasgow in a white Ford Transit van, picking up men to feed on. Glazer had to invent new types of hidden cameras to install in the van and secretly film Johansson flirting with unsuspecting locals. These non-actors bring a welcome sense of spontaneity to the proceedings; a quality that is so often absent from science fiction, and the novelty feels almost revolutionary for the genre. Accompanied by Mica Levi’s dissonant score, the camera clandestinely stalks the city streets capturing the ebb and flow of life.
To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE Under the Skin prize bundles, just answer the following simple question:
Under the Skin star Scarlett Johansson provided the voice of a sentient operating system in which film?
