4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By kathryne_1993 on 23 Jun 2011
Format: DVD
Skin follows the story of Frankie, a teenaged Dutch boy living in 1979 during the punk revolution. The story cuts between two different time periods; before and after he is sent to prison. Before his sentence, we are shown his strained relationship with his father, a Jewish concentration camp survivor, and his mother's fight with cancer. These family struggles make it easy to see why Frankie is as rebellious as he is. Throughout these scenes, we see Frankie become increasingly worse, ending up getting involved with a gang of neo-Nazis. His troubles are clear to the audience, when he allows the gang to give him a swastika tattoo on his chest, despite the fact that his father was part of a Nazi concentration camp.

Robert de Hoog plays Frankie brilliantly, resulting in a nomination for an International Emmy Award for Best Actor, and winning the award for Best Actor at the Netherlands Film Festival. His winning performance allowed the audience to fully believe Frankie's story.

Skin is a hard-hitting, strong story about youth rebellion, and how it can escalate from one extreme to the next, with lack of support and attention from friends and family. Frankie's Jewish roots make it harder to believe what he has become, making the story more gripping to watch.

Gritty, violent, true to life portrayal of peer pressure in the skinhead scene. Good Casting, good directing and all in all a must see.
