This is undoubtedly the darkest of all Almodovar. Here, the director abandons almost completely melodramatic speech devoted to him and dives deeply into a realm of more psychological approach than usual, full of nuances and shocking. Proof that he is able to get out of your comfort zone and venture into original productions.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of The Skin I Live In is ... read more

I had been wanting to see this for a really long time as I really like Antonio Banderas. This however was not what I was expecting to see when I hit play. Elena Anaya is quite stunning and a great actress who really shows her skills in this. The story is quite unusual and different. This Indie film is artsy and beautifully filmed while still being able to disturb you easily. The chemistry of the c... read more

Since it had been years the last time I saw a movie directed by Pedro Almodovar, I was really eager to see this one, especially since it had received some stellar reviews. Well, I wasn't disappointed as it was easily his best movie in years. Indeed, it was a fascinating tale and the Spanish master delivered here a really strong thriller. On top of that, after 20 long years, he was working again wi... read more

"Original Title: 'Pedro Almodóvar' Directed by: Pedro Almodóvar With: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Marisa Paredes 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. Note: It was easily Almodovar's best movie in years. Indeed, it was a fascinating tale and the Spanish master delivered here a really strong thriller. On top of t"

A good movie

“Since it had been years the last time I saw a movie directed by Pedro Almodovar, I was really eager to see this one, especially since it had received some stellar reviews. Well, I wasn't disappointed as it was easily his best movie in years. Indeed, it was a fascinating tale and the Spanish master delivered here a really strong thriller. On top of that, after 20 long years, he was working again with Antonio Banderas who gave here one of his best performances. Unfortunately, even though the whole thing really had the potential to be a real masterpiece, it still didn't completely worked, I'm afraid. First of all, I was worried when this guy in tiger suit showed up. Seriously, this character came from nowhere and he was basically one of these typical obnoxious characters that are a trademark ” read more

"8.1, PC Melkoinen twisti tähän on kyllä lätkäisty. Tietenkään tarina ei ole pelkästään sen varassa, vaan kehitystä tapahtuu niin Antonio Banderasin ja Elena Anyan henkilöhahmoissa kuin niiden välisessä suhteessa. Tukholma-syndrooman rakentuminen on näppärästi kuvattu epäkronologisen kerronnan avulla. Tarinan kaarta näin jälkeenpäin ajatellessani elokuvan tapahtuvat ovat melkoisen inhottavia, vaikkei siihen katselun aikana niin kiinnittänytkään huomiota. Alkupuoliskon rai"
