Sulla Mia Pelle – Alessio Cremonini

Alessio Cremonini’s Sulla Mia Pelle – On My Skin – tells the incredible true story behind the most controversial Italian court cases in recent years. Stefano Cucchi, brilliantly played by Alessandro Borghi, was arrested for a minor crime and mysteriously found dead during his detention. In one week's time, a family is changed forever.

“Sulla Mia Pelle, among various other things, is a way of combating, of opposing the greatest of injustices: silence. Of all the words that have been spent on his case over the years these are, for me, the most illuminating: “It is not acceptable, from a social and civil point of view even more than from a legal one, for a person to die, and not from natural causes, while in the care and responsibility of organs of the state”
Alessio Cremonini
Contessanally – tells the tragic true story of Stefano Cucchi beaten up whilst detained by carabinieri – brilliantly portrayed by Alessandro Borghi – weak acting by supporting cast – 7/10
