Rod's Review of The Skin I Live In
The Skin I Live In(2011)
A deliciously dark and perverse drama from Spanish 'Master Director' Pedro Almodovar that captivates with it's twists, turns and invention amongst the tasty melodrama. Although Almodovar is always unique in his vision, I did feel that he was highly influenced by 1960 Horror 'Eyes without a face' as well as the obvious nod to Frankenstein. Antonio Banderas seems 'at home' with his mother tongue and back with the Director that helped him start his career, whilst the rest of the cast are quite brilliant. Don't let anybody ruin the plot for you, just see it!
