Short Skin
(Short Skin - I dolori del giovane Edo)

Italy 2014
In Italian / English subtitles
86 min
For audicences aged 12 and above


Edoardo (played by the very promising young actor Matteo Creatini) lives in Pisa and has been suffering since childhood from phimosis. The wellbeing of his malformed penis is of great concern for the entire family, with both his parents and even his little sister Olivia participating in inspections of Edoardo's member. [...] According to the director, Short Skin has many autobiographical elements, which may explain the great love with which Chiarini presents his (protagonist's) misadventures, but also the amazing family chemistry. [...] The feature will captivate audiences with its smart mix of humour and drama, maybe even teaching a lesson or two about courage, improvisation and overcoming one's insecurities.
