On My Skin

Like that TV series, On My Skin will be distributed worldwide by Netflix, where it is due to debut on 12 September, a couple of weeks after its premiere as the opening film of the Venice festival’s Horizons section. Local exhibitors have protested about Lucky Red’s decision to release the film day and date in selected Italian theatres, but there’s no faulting the streaming giant’s instinct in picking up the tough, dour but compelling drama.

Small-time drug dealer Stefano Cucchi died in a Rome prison hospital on 22 October 2009. An end title informs us that he was one of 176 detainees to die that year – but unlike the vast majority, Cucchi’s case became a national scandal thanks to his family’s fight for justice and the strong suspicion that police brutality on the night of his detention may have played a role in his demise (a trial involving five Rome Carabinieri is still grinding through the Italian court system).

The key intuition of second-time director Cremonini and co-scriptwriter Lisa Nur Sultan is not to focus on the beating, which happens (or maybe doesn’t) behind a closed door that we never enter, but its aftermath. Whatever went on, whoever is to blame, a detainee who is barely able to walk, with bruises all over his face, is blithely sent through the judicial system, where he becomes a victim of procedure, of a system in which nobody is prepared to expose themselves by taking responsibility.
