The Skin I Live in (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) Review



Synopsis: Dr. Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas) is a driven plastic surgeon haunted by personal tragedies. After many years of trial and error, he finally perfects a new skin – a shield which could have prevented the death of his wife in an accident years earlier. His latest “guinea pig” is a mysterious captive whose true identity masks a shocking mystery. The Skin I Live In is a masterful tale of secrets, obsession and revenge from Oscar-winning (Best Writing, Original Screenplay, Talk to Her, 2002) writer/director Pedro Almodovar.

Review: This film was odd, to say the least.  Based on Thierry Jonquet's novel Tarantula, The Skin I Live In is the dark tale of a plastic surgeon obsessed with creating a perfect skin to protect the ones he loves.  The majority of the film he has a girl trapped in a room and he watches over her like the spider.  Watch for many plot holes, twists and a huge surprise ending on this one.  Its definately worth checking out.

Interest Range: Drama, Suspense
