The Man Who Sold His Skin (2021)

Kaouther Ben Hania directs Yahya Mahayni, Dea Liane and Monica Bellucci in this satire where a Syrian refugee signs a contract with a conceptual artist to have a visa tattooed on his back and be displayed as art so he can get to Belgium.

A very astute satire enlivened by Yahya Mahayni’s light comedy acting chops. Rather than focus on the atrocities and fallout of the Assad regime this finds an allegory that is accessible and universal. Well worth a watch.
