Fantastic Film
4 March 2019 | by daniel-361-630297See all my reviews

When I finished Skin I could not help remembering a phrase by Mario Puzo at the end of The Last Don that says: "Oh, what a wicked world it is that drives a man to sin." And Guy Nattiv achieve with this work is to show us the cruelty of the world through the eyes of a child, a child who is loved by his parents and who has the appreciation of his neighbors and despite all this love he has living in the more brutal violence, learning from the example, absorbing the lessons that it would be better to avoid because the consequences can be harsh. Nattiv gets a stark story that shows that a nonsense act can lead to merciless punishment. Brilliant as a film, painful as a reflection of a world that is leading many to sin.
