In My Skin
An ambitious young businesswoman (writer-director Maria de Van) accidentally cuts her leg while at a party one night – a seemingly innocuous incident, yet one which leads her, little by little, into the dark nether-world of self-mutilation and, finally, the depths of madness. Graphic and uncompromising, this is cinema at its most extreme – but also a powerful and resonant piece of work: a stunning debut from one of the most interesting new talents in world cinema.
