La Proxima Piel (The Next Skin) tells the story of a teenager who returns
home after having disappeared eight years prior
and long presumed dead.
The film explores the
emotional impact the boy’s return has on his
mother, who ardently believes that he is in fact her
long lost son, although others in the small Pyrenean
village begin to doubt his identity. Midway between
arthouse film and a piece that’s easy on the eyes,
cinematographically-speaking the film takes place
in a world on the border between a confused
drama and a rural thriller.
