Here are three new clips from Pedro Almodova's The Skin I Live In starring Antonio Banderas. The film tells the unsettling story of a plastic surgeon who gets himself a human guinea pig to test out a new type of skin he is creating. I am kinda freaked out by the idea of this film, but at the same time interested in seeing what it has to offer.
The film also stars Elena Anaya, Marisa Paredes, Jan Cornet, Roberto Alamo, Blanca Suárez, Eduard Fernández, José Luis Gómez, Bárbara Lennie, Susi Sánchez, Fernando Cayo and Teresa Manresa.
Here's the synopsis for the film:

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…
