4.0 out of 5 stars "A graphic drama" May 24 2004
By Alex
Format:DVD
From film director Marina De Van the haunting debut In My Skin disgusts audiences everywhere. Marina De Van stars and directs a film about a women's struggle with self-mutilation and her decent into madness. Esther, a young research analyst gashes her leg after an accidental fall. She becomes obsessed with her wounds, tracing the cuts on her leg, pinching her skin. Esther's obsession grows and becomes more serious when she starts to carve deep wounds into her flesh with knives, forks, anything she can get her hands on.
Her boyfriend Vincent does not understand Esther's problem and becomes concerned and angry. She continues to explore her body with her compulsion.

In My Skin is a disturbing and extremely graphic film that I would recommend to anyone with a strong stomach. Esther has a good paying job as a research analyst and a promotion on the way, which angers her jealous friend Sandrine who is disgusted and shocked by her friend's problem. The characters are pretty idiotic, such as Vincent who thinks he is the cause of Esther's self-mutilation. Her boyfriend has no interest in understanding her problem, instead he argues with her. Marina De Van, who wrote, directed, and starred in the film did a pretty good job of capturing the dark mood of the scenes.
However, De Van did not do such a good job of giving Esther a definite motive for her problem. The film does not bother to explain her problem or go into character depth.
The character development is interesting but the visuals are gruesome, especially when Esther begins to eat her flesh. In My Skin is difficult to watch at times but I made it through the entire film without closing my eyes though I was grabbing on to my couch as hard as I can.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing and disturbing April 23 2004
Format:DVD
i don't really feel like writing alot about this film here so this review probably won't be one of those "helpful" ones. what does that mean anyway? helpful to whom? i write this just to say that this one of those films that are very difficult to watch and yet you keep watching. marina de van is amazing as the main character the director and the writer. i guess i could write some critical/theoretical comments about body politics and the objectification of internal pain states etc. but i am really sick of writing theory. if you are looking for visual representations or performances addressing issues of the body and identity you could cull a few from here. to be silly i will say this is not a good date movie (at least as far as any relationship i'd like to be in). you will not feel happy and uplifted afterwards. you might even come away thinking films like this have no redeeming value. yet it is so so very very compelling to watch and think about. also, if you have ever looked at websites about "cutting" (often young over-achieving girls, but possible in any demographic) or if you cut or know of someone who does this would be a movie about the complex of "cutting" writ large. i don't know that much about it but i think it is alittle like anorexia and bulimia where people try to take control of their own lives at the only level they can. now i know that the ana/mia websites have the disclaimer that if you are a "recovering" ana/mia person you should not enter because you might get "triggered?" to return to your old habits and i think maybe that would be true for cutters too, and this film is so very graphic and eroticizes the act to the extent that someone who is trying not to be a cutter might want to steer clear.

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie really get under your skin Sept. 10 2008
Format:DVD
In My Skin

I knew a little about this film before watching it. A friend of mine showed me the trailor for it last year. I thought it looked really interesting, but didnt know exactly how intense and graphic it actually would be. I personally thought it was really well done. Very graphic at times, but being someone who is basically jaded when it comes to films, I wasnt too shocked or disturbed.

The story is really quite sad. Interesting, but sad. The ending really got to me. I dont want to spoil the movie so im not going to say why the ending left me upset, but it really did.

I dont know if Id say I "enjoyed" this movie, but I really liked it.
