The Skin I Live In | Spain | 2011 | 35mm | 120 min. | Spanish with English subtitles Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Sunday, October 29, 2017
Cast: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Marisa Paredes Twenty years after Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, Antonio Banderas makes a grand return to Almodóvar’s cinema, fittingly for the director’s kinkiest film since. Banderas plays a debonair mad scientist who has developed a form of artificial skin, which he tests on a captive-cum-human sculpture in his secret laboratory. With shades of Eyes Without a Face and Vertigo, this is the closest Almodóvar has come to a horror film.
