A genius plastic surgeon experiments on a mysterious and beautiful woman that he holds captive in his estate, as more and more is revealed about their relationship and past. A twisted, disturbing and almost surrealist psychological thriller. A plot full of mystery and suspense, all the while carrying a distinct intelligence and originality. Elements of horror and science fiction blend together perfectly in a film that puts to question such subjects as gender ambiguity, love, hate, morality, obsession and passion.
Directed in a Hitchcockian manner with a Pedro Almodóvar twist. Controversial, complex, thought-provoking and macabre. Gorgeous imagery, coupled with supreme performances from all characters, most notably a memorable portrayal of Dr. Ledgard by Antonio Banderas.
The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito) Cast: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Jan Cornet, Marisa Paredes
