Home / Now Showing / THICK SKINNED
In French with English subtitles
Two brothers set fire to a barn while drunk, inadvertently causing the death of a farm worker. One of the brother takes the hit for the incident and spends ten years in prison. The film tracks his return.
Set against the backdrop of a menacing, violent countryside, THICK SKINNED (PEAUX DE VACHES) – Patricia Mazuy’s debut feature, featuring Sandrine Bonnaire, whom she had met as an editor on Agnès Varda’s VAGABOND (1985) – is a corporeal, boozy psychodrama (which hints of the western and melodramatic genres) about hierarchies of power, guilt, betrayal and sex.
