First Look at Antonio Banderas in Pedro Almodóvar's The Skin That I Inhabit Hints at Sci-Fi

The first still from Pedro Almodóvar's upcoming The Skin That I Inhabit is a doozy; a funny, sinister image that looks like it was ripped straight from a 50's Sci-Fi movie that starred Antonio Banderas. That said, it's still difficult to tell what direction Almodóvar is going with this one. The novel the film is based on, Mygale by Thierry Jonquet, concerns a plastic surgeon obsessed with exacting revenge for his daughter's death while also trying to create a new type of skin. But previous synopses for the film emphasize the revenge aspect and completely ignore the science-fiction angle. Either way, it's a great still. Check out Banderas and his experiment after the jump.
