The Skin I Live In

Directed by Pedro Almodóvar

Ever since his wife was burned in a car crash, Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon, has been interested in creating a new skin with which he could have saved her. After twelve years, he manages to cultivate a skin that is a real shield against every assault. In addition to years of study and experimentation, Robert needed a further three things: no scruples, an accomplice and a human guinea pig.

A traumatic event upsets the weird dynamic between a plastic surgeon and the woman he keeps locked away in his lavish mansion.
