The film, which stars Antonio Banderas and budding actress Spanish actress Elena Anaya, focuses on a mad but brilliant surgeon (Banderas) who kidnaps a man who raped his daughter. The doctor's daughter killed herself from the grief and it drives him to take very drastic measures. This is where it gets complicated and disturbing. Banderas then gives the rapist a sex change and transplants his deceased daughter's face onto his body. He later has sex with the man he has brutally experimented on and turned into a woman.


Apparently a bunch of people walked out of this at Cannes. It's called "The Skin I Live In"

i've been reading about it. seems like it'll end up being like the human centipede and a serbian film.

I think this will end up getting alot more attention than both of those films mostly because Banderas is in the film. It will end up getting the attention that the Brown Bunny got mostly because it was a known actress performing the blowjob.

Plus it was directed by Pedro Almodovar, who is a highly acclaimed and highly respected director. But from reading the few reviews on RT so far, it doesn`t sound like it`s nearly as depraved and fucked up as Steve`s description.

The first review I read said that it was pretty graphic in the "questionable" scenes, we'll say for a lack of a better term. It was described as a "horror film without the screams and frights".

I've enjoyed his other work a lot so I'll see this.
