Peau de Vache (spoilers)
3 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A young woman (Sophie Quinton) works with her father on his farm. In her spare time she earns some extra money by dancing provocatively with young boys to Roy Orbison's "In Dreams".

Her dream is to be a cow, having fallen in love with the bull Pablo. For her transformation she buys a jacket made from cow hide and has a nose piercing. Just as she is about to give herself to Pablo a young man appears. He has piercings and hair that gives him a bovine appearance ...

So ends this quirky 20-minute short film from the director of Avril (aka April in Love, 2006), which featured Sophie Quinton also, in the titular role. The film is gently humorous as it obliquely shows us the girl, her life and her dream fantasy.

The film is included as an extra on the region 2 DVD release of Avril.
