Storyline

Thierry has just become acquainted with Claire, and already he is deeply in love with her - even if she has the one characteristic he doesn't like in a woman: very pale skin. Despite Claire's attempts to dissuade him, they are fatally attracted to each other. Thierry is obsessed with her, and his best friend Henri sees him physically and mentally decaying. When Thierry finds out that Claire's sister had tried to kill Henri in a hotel, he realizes he knows very little about her, and about the mysterious genetic laws of heredity. Written by delt_

La Peau Blanche aka White Skin
28 June 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

This was somewhat of a surprise. I read the synopsis, so I had an idea, but I didn't expect any quality whatsoever. That was a huge element of the surprise; the performance and story quality. The execution was a bit choppy, and the racial theme was a bit off putting, but all in all, this was very well done.

A grad student discovers his distant, overly-white girlfriend has a few secrets. Secrets her mother will do anything to destroy.

This features some decent performances, a relatively unique story line, and a half-decent score. The dubbing is horrid, but I suppose it's difficult to sync French with English. This is a drama rather than an actioner, and is more suspense with horror elements than outright horror, so remember that if you decide to give this one a viewing.

All in all? This was very well done, considering lack of budget, and carries an innovative story I found entertaining. Perhaps you will, too.

It rates a 6.7/10 from...
