One of the upcoming projects that definitely deserves our full attention is Pedro Almodovar‘s The Skin I Live In.
Just in case you’re wondering why – first of all, the movie is scheduled to premiere In Competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Second, we finally have some new images to share with you, and we’re sure you’re going to love it!
Creepy as you see, but Almodovar had already described the film as “a horror story without scream or frights.”
Based on Thierry Jonquet‘s novel Tarantula the movie tells the story of a surgeon who tries to save the life of his wife by creating a new skin.
Here’s a little description: “Since his wife perished burnt in a car crash, Dr Ledgard (Antonio Banderas), a well respected plastic surgeon, gets interested in the creation of a new type of skin that could have saved his wife.
Twelve years later he succeeds in cultivating it at his lab, taking advantage in the advance made on cellular therapy. To get to his goal he doesn’t doubt in trespassing the ethical limit of the transgenesis with human beings. But this will not be the only crime he will commit…”
The Skin I Live In stars Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Marisa Paredes, Jan Cornet, Roberto Álamo, Blanca Suárez, Eduard Fernández, José Luis Gómez, Bárbara Lennie, Susi Sánchez, Fernando Cayo and Teresa Manresa.
Let us just mention that the film reunited Banderas and Almodovar 20 years after their last film, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!
