La piel que habito is a spanish psycholoical thriller film written and directed by Pedro Almodovar, released in 2011, this film is based on Mygale, a novel by the french author Thierry Jonquet.
La piel que habito means « The skin I live in » = when I heard for the first time the title, I was curious and intrigued by what it could be, so I decided to watch it and discover what was hidden behind this title.
I made a very good choice, I adored and really appreciated to watch this movie to the very end. The end is an enormous fall, I didn’t expect it !
If you like movie with suspense, with twisted stories, it is made for you, really, make the good choice too !I am going to talk about the plot ! Robert Ledgard, an esthetic surgeon, tries for twelve years to create a synthetic skin which would have been able to save his wife, dead burned. Robert Ledgard keeps a woman as prisoner in a room of his house to do tests on her. The film is based on flash back which show us the pst of this woman. I can’t tell you more, but, really : WATCH IT ! If you don’t, you miss a really beautiful, amazing and moving story.
