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_

Art-house Cannibalism
15 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though some may present this as a "chips & beer" type film, La Peau Blanche (USA DVD RETITLE: Cannibal) is certainly not the kind of film one might bring to a friend's home.

The film touches on race, heredity, evolution and love. This was an interesting film though it did tend to jump up on a soapbox on occasion which ended up giving the film a 1st draft, film school student feel.

The acting was decent but the dialogue was stiff at times.

This is art-house horror at its best and worst. If you're in the U.S., don't let the retitling and silly DVD cover fool you. Lionsgate loves to play with titles and covers (i.e. Romasanta).

Fans of films like Nekromantik & The Addiction may find this film to their liking.
