Trama e commenti: «Henri è un haitiano del Québec che vive con il suo compagno di camera Thierry. Spendono il loro tempo libero camminando per le vie di Montreal. Thierry si innamora di una bizzarra ragazza dai capelli rossi, Claire, nei confronti della quale Henri è sospettoso. Esordio ambiziosissimo di Roby, che strizza l’occhio a Cronenberg e Polanski mettendo a nudo, con ironia, la paura della diversità in tutte le sue forme».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - «One autumn evening, Thierry (Marc Paquet), a young man from the Gaspé now studying in Montreal, and his Haitian roommate and best friend Henri (Frédéric Pierre) decide to hire a pair of prostitutes to celebrate Thierry's birthday. The fun comes to an abrupt end when the frail, red-headed prostitute nearly succeeds in cutting Henri's throat. A few months later, Thierry falls hopelessly in love with another beautiful redhead, Claire, and gradually lets her take control of his life. Everything begins to seem very bizarre: the young woman's sexual appetite, her mysterious illness, her strange family – all redheads. Henri begins asking questions, forcing Thierry to discover the family's dark and deadly secret. Shot on HD in twenty-two days for a budget of $800,000, La Peau blanche is a fresh, genre-bending film, mixing elements of science fiction, romance and fantasy. With nods to David Cronenberg – excerpts from Rabid (1977) are cleverly utilized – and such Roman Polanski classics as Rosemary's Baby (1968), director Daniel Roby’s situations, dialogue and characters inhabit a real world gone terrifyingly askew. La Peau blanche is a strikingly assured feature debut that uses atmosphere and suggestion to intrigue and terrify throughout. It received the award for Best Canadian First Feature Film at the Toronto International Film Festival® and was named one of Canada's Top Ten of 2004 by an independent, national panel of filmmakers, programmers, journalists and industry professionals» (Stacey Donen).
