Florian Koerner von Gustorf,
The erotic novelist Taeko is writing a morbid story of a family destroyed by incest, murder and abuse. Her assistant, Yuji, sets on a mission to uncover the reality of this story, but the reality might be too much to bear.
Beautiful, and with a loving boyfriend by her side, the Parisian marketing consultant, Esther, is a successful young woman who seems satisfied with her life, until a profound laceration in her leg caught her attention. Indeed, underneath this elaborate façade, Esther conceals a more compulsive self, who, little by little, begins to develop an enthralling and equally compelling fascination for the taste of her flesh, burrowing deeper and deeper into an unknown realm of self-mutilation and dreadful cannibalistic pleasure. Now--as the blind primitive impulses devour Esther--her ever-growing fits of fetishistic self-consuming rage, inevitably, will become noticeable to everyone, and above all, to her worried boyfriend. However, he, too, stands powerless before troubled Esther's unsatisfied cravings. How deep must she cut to discover the truth?Written by
In this french psychological horror flick you have a woman who's seriously losing touch with the real world. The real world in a common sense way of thinking is a place where a person would never want to eat them-self. Well, in our leading lady's world, this is the case.
In My Skin is really a bizarre flick. It's not overly gross, it's not gory, it's not offensive, but I'll be damned if this flick didn't make me feel weird while watching it. It's incredibly intimate with it's portrayal of a really messed up situation. There were many instances where I'd feel uncomfortable, and that rarely happens to me.
I always thought I was kinda weird (I was told that it's weird) when I would pick a scab off and eat it. But this takes that to a whole new level, and I can kinda see where my friends were coming from when they were telling me that what I was doing was messed up. I didn't stop, and who knows if our French character will either.
Give this flick a shot if you're into unique film-making. But if you're slightly queasy about graphic bloody injuries, I'd say pass. But you'd be missing out, since this is one portrayal of a personality that's quite unique.
