The Skin I Live InForeign film The Skin I Live In made the art house theater rounds to much acclaim from critics and audiences.

Written and directed by Pedro Almodovar (Broken Embraces), the movie stars Antonio Banderas (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger) as a plastic surgeon whose wife died in a flaming car accident. After much trial and error, Banderas’ Dr. Robert Ledgard creates a synthetic skin that could have saved his wife’s life, and he tests it on a mysterious woman whose past is closely linked to the tragic events that haunt him.

The Spanish-language film, which is based on the novel by Thierry Jonquet and written in collaboration with Agustin Almodovar (The Devil’s Backbone), also stars Elena Anaya (Point Blank) and Marisa Paredes (Life Is Beautiful).

Like Sony’s release of other smaller and foreign movies, The Skin I Live In is only available as a DVD/Blu-ray Combo pack. The two-disc set includes these special features:

  • Q&A with director Pedro Almodovar
  • “On the Red Carpet: New York Premiere”

Critics hailed the thriller movie. Sarasota Herald-Tribune‘s Christopher Lloyd said The Skin I Live In is “a wonderfully twisted cinematic expedition into territory rarely traveled.”
