Six men push their bodies to the limit in lyrical documentary 'A Skin so Soft'

In Denis Côté’s quiet but effective French-Canadian film, Jean-François, Cédric, Benoit, Maxim, Alexis and Ronald each have different goals for their bodies, whether as a bodybuilder, wrestler, strongman or personal trainer. “A Skin so Soft” spends time with each man as he goes about his day, including lifting weights, carefully portioning meals and enduring physical therapy. It offers insight into their daily lives, pain and sacrifice.
