A Parisian marketing professional, Esther (Marina de Van) has a gruesome secret. She's been obsessed with the damage she can inflict upon her own body ever since sustaining a deep cut in an accident.

Soon her self-mutilation places her in mortal danger.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    As unrelenting an exploration of isolation and dissociation as Roman Polanski's "Repulsion."

  • 80

    Variety David Rooney

    Delves far more deeply into grisly physical manifestation than psychological motivation, making it seem something of an actorish vanity piece. But the drama is directed with arrest...

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times Manohla Dargis

    Spectacularly grotesque and literally nauseating, even for this usually intrepid moviegoer, In My Skin is among the more disturbing films in this blood-drenched cinematic season.
