So how did I end up watching his latest movie The Skin I Live In (La Piel que Habito in original) you might ask? I got an invitation, read the resumé of the movie for about seven times until I decided, thinking it should be “okay”. Little did I know I was in for a unique experience!
This is a hard movie to talk about without spoiling something, so I’ll say as little as possible.
The movie stars Antonio Banderas, who plays a respect surgeon and has in his house, hidden from everyone else a woman on who he does some skins test has been obsessed with since the death of his wife.
A little too short of an introduction, I know, but believe me, you’ll thank me later I didn’t spoil you anything.
This movie wastes no time in getting you hooked up into its fabulous plot. Not only it’s mysterious and shady, you later in get a flash back that gives the movie a complete new perspective and it ends with a brilliant and touching ending.
I truly have no words to how much I enjoyed this movie. I can’t say much praise it will get but if anything, it’s unique and by far the best movie I’ve seen in this year of 2011.
If you like movies, a good story, something unusual, well played characters and even a little more, you should definitively watch this movie!
