Trailer Watch: Pedro Almodovar’s ‘The Skin I Live In’

The Skin I Live In

Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In  (La piel que habito) has been hotly discussed since it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and thanks to Shock Til You Drop we can have a look at the mesmerizing new Spanish trailer for the film.

It concerns the brilliant plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas), who is obsessed with creating a perfect and impenetrable skin following the death of his wife in a car crash. The new trailer is haunting, surreal and completely hypnotic.

The original poster art, inspired by antique botanical and anatomy books it would seems, is also worth a look if you haven’t seen it yet:
