Four More Weird Posters for Almodóvar's 'The Skin That I Live In'
La Piel que Habito. Almodóvar has gone horror? We featured a very peculiar poster for Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar's new movie The Skin That I Inhabit, aka La Piel que Habito translated from Spanish, starring Antonio Banderas as a plastic surgeon. No more than a week later, 3Xtras (via The Playlist) has revealed another set of posters for the film and they're even weird - like designs for a new Saw film. I'm not even sure what half this stuff is? We've got a face and some needles, but why a DNA double-helix? I guess I'll admit these definitely make me curious, but I'm not sure they actually sold me on it yet. See all four below.
You can also see the original anatomical poster right here. Based on Thierry Jonquet's Mygale, this revenge tale tells the story of a plastic surgeon, played by Banderas (reuniting after 20 years with Almodóvar after working on Tie Me Up! Time Me Down! in 1990), seeking revenge on the men who raped his daughter. But apparently it's much more than that: while seeking justice, he keeps his wife imprisoned and subjects her to humiliating sex acts with strangers. Wow, okay. This is Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar's newest film following Broken Embraces, and we expect it to premiere at Cannes. What do you make of these posters?
