The Skin I Live In

I'm spending a lot of time in my music room at the moment in preparation for my upcoming gigs [link]. However, I did slip out to see Almodovar's new movie 'The Skin I live In'. The friend who I saw it with was perplexed throughout (I'm perplexed that this is the first Almodavar movie she's ever seen-can you imagine not having seen 'All About My mother' or 'Volver' ?!). I was happier, mesmerised by Antonio Banderas' quiet elegance & beauty - even if he plays a very bad man. I suppose most people's enjoyment will rest on how surprised they are by the film's twist. However, maybe this is not the best film to begin an Almodovar education, the crazy plot lines & melodrama which amused me just irritated my friend. I'm very excited about Almodovar's next project, it will be a film about the great Italian singer Mina ! [link] lotsoflove tt
