It’s nice to know Antonio Banderas is still alive and getting work, even if his latest flick, The Skin I Live In, is so disgusting it sent the French running from the theater sick to their stomachs. Jo Piazza reports from the Cannes film festival:
(The Skin I Live In) focuses on a mad but brilliant surgeon (Banderas) who kidnaps a man who raped his daughter.
The doctor’s daughter killed herself from the grief and it drives him to take very drastic measures. This is where it gets complicated and disturbing.
Banderas then gives the rapist a sex change and transplants his deceased daughter’s face onto his body.
He later has sex with the man he has brutally experimented on and turned into a woman.
The movie also contained several disturbing rape scenes and nudity.
And yet, of course, the snooty film critics actually liked the movie.
Critics have also fallen in love with the upsetting film and are placing it in contention for the highest Cannes honor, the Palme d’or.
