The Skin I Live In (2011)

Direcetd by: Pedro Almodovar
Country: Spain

Plot: A brilliant plastic surgeon, haunted by past tragedies, creates a type of synthetic skin that withstands any kind of damage. His guinea pig: a mysterious and volatile woman who holds the key to his obsession.
Quick comment: The hand of Almodovar is there and we are able to recognize his usual style but the plot lacks power as it reaches the end. It promises much more than it gives. A frustrating picture.
Relevant Awards: Best Foreign Language Film at Phoenix and Washington Film Festivals, USA
