Under the Skin (Bajo la piel)

Edition 1997
110' - 1996 - Crime, Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Spanish
Director: Francisco J. Lombardi Composer: Bingen Mandizabal With: Ana Risueno, Jose Luis Ruiz Barahona, Diego Bertie, Ginafranco Brero
A shy, insecure and peace-loving cop by the name of Percy Corso is appointed at the Palle police station in a small Peruvian village of the same name. Palle was once the homeland of the Moches, the violent yet beautiful people from the pre-Inca era. When a series of crimes is committed in the Moche tradition (young people with their throats cut, bulging eyes and decapitated bodies) Percy Corso is appointed to lead the investigation with a Spanish pathologist and a professor who is specialised in the Moche culture. The increasingly close relationship between the pathologist and Percy Corso moves the policeman to fiery passions and deeper urges he cannot control.
