American Trailer For Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In

Yesterday I headed off to the cinema and watched a double bill of The Rise of The Apes and The Skin I live In which is a strange but thrilling movie, one that Pierre at Cinehouse has been raving about and yes it is worth the hype. Put aside any laziness from not wanting to read subtitles embrace the film and Almodovar will certainly take you on a intriguing ride which is thrilling, sexy, dark story you may want to jump off at any time but stay with it as it has an unexpected twist!
