The shopping centre is just one of many Scottish locations Scarlett Johansson's character visits as the woman who falls to Earth, and if you think the sight of the Lost in Translation star strolling towards Claire's Accessories is mind-bending, stick around.
Laura (Johansson) has one mission when she takes up her new post. Equipped with raven curls and a white van - plus the general, stop the traffic looks of Johansson - she cruises Glasgow picking up stray men only too happy to give her directions to the M8. What she really has in mind is something else. After her tour of the city's less glamorous environs, she heads for the Highlands, only for her mission, and her character, to undergo further metamorphoses.
With barely any dialogue, a plot as thin and taut as a piano wire, and not a lot in the way of budget, Under the Skin is reliant for success on its A-list star, and its director's ability to conjure up an other-worldly atmosphere from the mundane. Both parties, with the help of a brilliant score by Mica Levi, triumph in bringing Michel Faber's novel to the screen in the fashion it deserves.
Supported by Creative Scotland, this is about as far from tourist bait as can be imagined, and is all the better for it. Utterly distinctive and strangely mesmerising, it is Scotland on screen as you have never seen it before. More please.
