New Teaser For Almodovar's THE SKIN I LIVE IN Is Dark, Twisted Genius
Get ready for one minute of brilliance.

A brief clip of Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In (La Piel Que Habito) appeared online leading up to the film's premiere in Cannes. But while that film was certainly enough to intrigue and demonstrate that star Antonio Banderas was being well served, indeed, by his return to Spanish cinema it really provided only the briefest glimpse of one aspect of the film. Now we get more.

French distributor Pathe have released the first proper theatrical teaser for Almodovar's latest and while equally brief it gives a whole lot more of what looks to be a wildly compelling picture.

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. Scruples were never a problem. Marilia, the woman who looked after him from the day he was born, is his most faithful accomplice. And as for the human guinea pig...

Check the new teaser below.

Hmm, I don't know how representative it is of the film, but the Cannes teaser was way better. Either way, I'll see this film the first chance I get. Almodovar was one of my very first brushes with cinematic madness when I watched Atame at 12, and I've been an addict ever since.

What is it with foreign film trailers and the lack of dialogue?

Trailer editors know Americans are afraid of subtitles.
