Director Luca Guadagnino consulted a pathologist to understand cannibalism

To the Bones: Bones and All is the new film that reunites the director Luca Guadagnino and the actor Timothée Chalamet from the successful Call me By your name. The film will be released this weekend in our country and represents a curious approach between the limits of love and death. And it is that the central theme of the story is cannibalism, something for which the Italian filmmaker has prepared by consulting the subject with an expert pathologist in the subject.

The head of the film’s makeup, Fernanda Pérez, revealed in an interview with GQ that Guadagnino was looking for a realism beyond the magical practical effects in the cinema. To do this, the technical team had to understand how cannibalism actually worked: “Luca is very specific. From the beginning he told us that he didn’t want gore or fantasy. We contacted a pathologist because we wanted to know how a person is eaten, and we found out that it is not that easy to eat a person.”

Jason Hamer, the person in charge of the prosthetics, also entered the conversation, describing the special care they have taken in recreating the different layers of the skin; as well as fat, muscle and tendon. “It’s not just a big, flat piece of silicone. It is to tear and put sand between the teeth, all that Luca wanted”Hamer explained. In to the bone, Maren (Taylor Russell) and Lee (Chalamet) travel across the United States to find her father. Inside her, Russell’s character wants to understand why she feels the need to end the lives of those she loves.

To explain the situation, Hamer explained one of the scenes where Maren having a high school sleepover bites the finger of one of her classmates: “Luca wanted to see the meat, the bone, the layers. We created a eurothane bone that was also tubed with blood so (Russell) could bite into it and remove the gloves from the skin.”, a kind of glove with prosthetic recreations of the little and ring fingers. Chalamet has two relevant projects for 2023; Dune: part 2 y Wonkathe spin-off of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
