The Reflecting Skin

Directed by Philip Ridley

Seth is a mischievous eight-year-old growing up in the harsh realities of 1950s rural Idaho. But his whole world changes the day he decides the widowed neighbor woman, Dolphin Blue, is a vampire. Inspired by his father’s stories, Seth begins to believe she is responsible for the terrible events happening around him.

A mischievous boy finds out his neighbor is a vampire in this dreamy gem.

This film is getting so many 1 star reviews from what sound like the typical short-attention span modern movie-watcher that I have put it in my watch-list. It MUST be good.

A surreal tale of childhood loss of innocence. Some beautiful shots, some completely overblown combined with mostly dreadful acting (Lindsay Duncan aside who does a fine job as the oddly named Dolphin Blue) make for an unusual cinematic experience. Oh and a score that’s more bloated than that poor frog.

Centering more on the relationship between the boy and the wonderfully 'eccentric' Dolphin Blue. She's as mad as a bucket of frogs and brilliantly portrayed by Lindsay Duncan, who makes this film for me.
