Recently wrapped is Pedro Almodovar’s long-in-development adaptation of La Piel Que Habito, or The Skin That I Am In or The Skin I Inhabit or The Skin In Which I Live. One day an English language trailer or poster will arrive and I’ll finally know what I should be calling it.
The film stars Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya and you can see them in these images, alongside Almodovar and a make-up woman.
Here’s how I described the picture as shooting was kicking off:
The screenplay has been adapted from Thierry Jonquet’s novel Tarantula, originally Mygale.
I’ve not read the book, I’m afraid, but I do know that it’s quite full of… ‘deviant’ behaviour. Human Centipede deviant? Actually… I don’t know what to say about that, because I’d hate to spoil anything, but I think I’ve caught whiff of a rather audacious, moderately barmy twist that Almodovar is going to have a hard time hiding from viewers.
Thanks to Omelet for having all three images in one place.
UPDATE: And El Mundo for adding this fourth one.
