Review: The Skin I Live In

What's creepy in Spanish?

The Husband won tickets to this movie from Flicks. I hadn't realised it was in Spanish, not that it was a bad thing. I think it lent to the setting and characters.

Banderas as Dr Ledgard is brilliant. He's cold, calculating and inevitably succumbs to his victim's charms.

The movie itself is a bit 'Silence of the Lambs' for the creepy aspect. Some scenes in the lab I found funny, a bit "Dr Frankenstein" for this day and age.

I think the poor family was doomed by insanity and I couldn't help feeling that it would end the way it did.

The characters were great, the scenery and backgrounds were lovely. I'll have to look up the other movies by Almodovar now.
