Esther is an ambitious 30-year-old woman. One fateful night at a party, she seriously hurts her leg, however can't seem to feel the pain. This incident propels her toward the start of a self-destructive compulsion, and an exploration of a professional woman's descent into increasingly disturbing and obsessive acts of self-mutilation.

As it is, it's a silly, if simultaneously deadpan and stomach-churning, psychological portrait of one crazy lady.
As disquieting a portrait of psychosis as has ever spilled across the screen.
Unpleasant and irredeemable.
...without a single glimpse into what makes Esther tick, it's impossible to feel a single thing towards her except apathy.
An endless display of masochism that's hard to watch, even for the most stalwart filmgoer.
I'm not sure if the film is brutally honest or exploiting a tragic disorder. I felt drained when I left the theatre; the more I thought about it, the less satisfied I was.
Winds up seeming little more than a grisly exercise in well-calibrated acting and what one hopes are well-executed special effects.
Marina de Van will be familiar to some as the screenwriter of François Ozon's 8 Women, but she's a revelation here, and a terrifically disturbing one at that.
like a train wreck, you cannot take your eye (my other on was permanently shut at this point) off of In My Skin.
