Underneath the Skin

Michael Noer, Denmark, 2003

23 min.DK/DocumentaryFilm school films, Portrait films

This film is about Ole Ege, the manager of the Museum of Erotica, Copenhagen, and the former director of pornographic movies. Ulla was one of his models but she vanished long ago. Ole is trapped by the strange forces of love in the borderland between drama and reality, sensuality and pornography, love and destruction. We are all alike underneath the skin. The film is a portrait of a man seeking love, a man who loves life and seeks love. You are what you love. Nobody should try to erase that.
