must see: la piel que habito
The movie of the year for me was Pedro Almodóvar’s latest la piel que habito – the skin I live in. I watched it a few days ago and it has been haunting me ever since.
I’m a long time fan of Almodóvar’s work and this was no exception. It’s very difficult to explain it, the less you know going in, the better. I can’t even tell you the genre, it’s drama, thriller, horror, sci-fi all in one. Stunning visuals and a story that will shock you.
A brilliant plastic surgeon (Antonio Banderas) has developed a new impenetrable skin by experimenting with a beautiful woman (Elena Anaya) who is his personal guinea pig locked up in a room in his house. The surgeon is haunted by past tragedies and therefore has no morals whatsoever. Rated R.
I can’t tell you any more – find out for yourself.
I wonder, is El secreto de sus ojos also Almodovar’s work? The name seems familiar, although I’m not a big movie fan of any kind. 🙂
Lovely blog, wanna check out mine?
Happy New Year’s!!
El secreto de tus ojos is an argentine film. Not Almodovar.
You must see Pedro Almodovar’s “Volver”…
Best wishes for the New year!!!
