Segunda piel (1999) aka Second Skin


Segunda piel (1999) aka Second SkinSinoć sam uživao gledajući ovaj film u kojem glavne uloge imaju Jordi Mollŕ, Ariadna Gili i prelijepi Javier Bardem. Priča koja je toliko realistična da sam na momente pomislio kako je jedan dio mog života prenesen na filmsko platno. Strašno! Mada istini za volju u filmu to izgleda mnogo lakše nego u stvarnosti. Kad ti se čini da gubiš dio sebe i moraš da izabereš između dvije drage osobe, znajući da ćeš jednu zauvjek izgubiti.
U ovom filmu Alberto Garcia mora da izabere između porodice, žene Elene i djeteta i Diega za kojeg je takođe vezan svim srcem. Živeći rastrzan u laži sve mu se počne komplikovati kada Elena posumlja i sazna za njegovu vezu sa Diegom.
Alberto pokušava da sačuva porodicu i ostavi Diega , ali nema snage za to! Kako ostaviti nekoga za kim ti srce žudi, koga voliš više negoli samog sebe? Gdje god da pokušaš pobijeći , biježiš od samog sebe.
Potresna priča, životna i vjerujem da nije rijetka.
Scene u kojima je prikazan seks između Alberta i Diega su strastvene, odlično urađene. Za trenutak sam pomislio da je stvarnost. Sa druge strane scene sa ženom nisu ni upola ispunjene željom i emocijama. Tako je to i u stvarnom životu!
I sam imam vezu sa oženjenim ćovijekom. Znam da mu nije lako. Živimo za dane kada ćemo se vidjeti, i svaki trenutak mi je on u mislima.
Iz dva različita svjeta smo, a volimo se toliko snažno, jako, iskreno... Razumijem ga, ima porodicu, vezan je za nju. A opet nisam sam na ovom svjetu, sve dok osjećam svaku emociju, želju , ljubav, strast i iskrenost od njega.
Završetak ovog filma mi se ne sviđa. Naprosto ne želim da se tako završi!

Second Skin (Segunda Piel) is a 2000 gay film by Spanish director Gerardo Vera, starring Jordi Molla, Javier Bardem and Ariadna Gil. The film is available in DVD in Spain.
The film is about a couple from Madrid, Elena (Ariadna Gil) and Alberto (Jordi Molla). They have a happy marriage, professional success and a loving son. But later, Elena finds a hotel receipt in Alberto's pocket and discovers that he has been unfaithful to her. To her surprise, the one who has been involved is another man, Diego (Javier Bardem). Alberto is struggling to save both his marriage and forget his feelings for Diego, but fails. Finally, everything comes to an end when Elena confronts Diego, who didn't know Alberto was married, and kicks Alberto off the house. Leaving Diego's home grievedly after a fight, Alberto is killed in an accident.

The movie ends with Elena and Diego becoming sort-of friends.

This is a dramatic, very realistic story about the internal strife of a bisexual man, torn between his beautiful wife and child and his desire for romance with a Gay surgeon. Well photographed and directed with excellent music. Excellent beach scenery. Explicit sex scenes are well done. The emotional pain of the 'bisexual' man (more likely a Gay man who married to please his parents and conform to societal pressures) is very graphically and honestly portrayed. The damage that his refusal to deal with his identity crisis causes both his wife and his lover is also honestly shown. Javier Bardem is excellent as the surgeon and Adriana Gil as the wife is stunningly beautiful.

The running time on this is incorrect....it's only 100 minutes, not 110 as is listed here and on IMDB. Even the company which released this in the U.S. has the same running time (although another wrong one) listed for both their releases of the R-rated and the Unrated version. This is definitely the Unrated version, because I located a second set of download links elsewhere on a Spanish site from the Spanish DVD, and that running time is exactly the same as the time for the one I downloaded from here.

Next problem with the download from here: Although the entire movie was filmed in a 2.35:1 scope ratio, what's been posted here is apparently from the U.S. DVD release, which only has the opening credits in 2.35:1, while the rest of the movie has had the ends cropped off so the rest of the movie is only 1.85:1!! This is also how I knew which DVD release this was....I also checked everything on IMDB, and also submitted a corrected running time for the movie.

The video from the Spanish DVD is in MPG format, and although it's not anamorphic widescreen like the links you have here, the Spanish rip is ENTIRELY in the correct 2.35:1 scope ratio.
