The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito)

Spain/Spanish (117 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Ever since his wife was burned in a car crash, Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon, has been interested in creating a new skin with which he could have saved her. After twelve years, he manages to cultivate a skin that is a real shield against every assault. In addition to years of study and experimentation, Robert needed a further three things: no scruples, an accomplice, and a human guinea pig. Scruples were never a problem. Marilia, the woman who looked after him from the day he was born, is his most faithful accomplice. And as for the human guinea pig…

Almodovar is BACK, with his most audacious creation yet, reuniting him with Antonio Banderas for the first time in more than 2 decades – crafting an utterly freaky (not to mention horrifying) tale of revenge that wowed audiences at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
