In My Skin (2002)

In My Skin / Dans Ma Peau (2002)

Genre: Drama / Horror
Director: Marina de Van
Starring: Marina de Van, Laurent Lucas, Léa Drucker

Summary:
Esther is a self-conscious young woman who works for a public relations firm. Her life is by all accounts fairly successful. Her boyfriend, Vincent wants to move in with her. She's in line for a promotion at work. Then one night at a party, Esther wanders into the backyard and stumbles, scratching her leg on a piece of scrap metal.  Intrigued by the lack of pain from the injury, Esther soon becomes obsessed with her wound and begins a grotesque downward spiral of compulsive, self-destructive behavior.

IMDB
Amazon

Written, directed by, and starring Marina de Van, who also starred in Francois Ozon's See the Sea.  In My Skin's horror is realistic and psychological.  A well put together, believable, and very cringe worthy essay on self mutilation.
