The Skin I Live In Review - 3 Stars
Oh Lordy what a weird delight! The great Antonio Banderas plays a plastic surgeon who keeps a patient under lock and key, testing a new synthetic skin on her. Gradually we back up six years to understand what leads to this strange story involving a dead wife and daughter, grief, love, and stone cold revenge In Spanish with subtitles directed by the great Pedro Aldomovar. Whatever you call it—drama, science fiction, horror—the result fascinates. A wild ride for foreign film fans. In Spanish with subtitles. Does it deliver what it promises? Fascinating mix of horror, sci fi, love and revenge. Is it entertaining? A mind bender. Is it worth the price of admission. This one will stay with you.
