Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Cinematographer: José Luis Alcaine
Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In is a twisted tale of madness, obsession, and revenge.
The film features Antonio Banderas in his most sinister role as Dr. Robert Ledgard, an exceptional surgeon haunted by the demise of both his wife and daughter. Dr. Ledgard is currently in the process of finishing the flawless skin. His guinea pig is a mysterious “woman” named Vera Cruz (played by the beautiful Elena Anaya). Vera also has her share of dark past, and wants out of her claustrophobic existence.
