Movie Info

Jean-François, Ronald, Alexis, Cédric, Benoit and Maxim are gladiators of modern times. From the strongman to the top-class bodybuilder, to the veteran who has become a trainer, they all share the same definition, determination, and obsession: overcoming the limitations of their bodies. They are waiting for the next competition, slaving away in the gym and following extreme diets. A SKIN SO SOFT is a free exploration of the regimented daily lives of these misunderstood monsters.
