THE SKIN I LIVE IN (2011)




Director:
Pedro Almodovar

Writer:
Pedro Almodovar

Starring:
Antonio Banderas
Elena Anaya
Jan Cornet and others

The Skin I Live In is legendary Spanish director Almodovar's movie. I had proclaimed that he cannot have a bad movie while watching his Volver, well I take those words back. This movie is creepy and unnerving and is a movie that has the feel of everything that Almodovar doesn't stand for. The only thing that is vintage Almodovar is his play with the colours. The performances are top notch but the unnecessarily weird script is more than a mild put off. Watch it at your own risk.
