In The Skin I Live In, Antonio Banderas is a doctor whose methods borderline on the unethical, but are all engrossing for the movie audience. Banderas, the international superstar, sat down with Movie Fanatic for an exclusive video interview about what it was about The Skin I Live In that made him game for the gnarly and deeply disturbing in a good way film.
Banderas, who we will speak to next week for Puss in Boots, shared how it was The Skin I Live In director, his old friend Pedro Almodovar, which had him regardless of the film’s subject matter. The fact that the film is a mind messer was all the better!
The Skin I Live In is Banderas’ fifth film with Almodovar, after Labyrinth of Passion (the star’s very first film), Matador, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!
Banderas talks about the magic of Almodovar and how after decades in the business, the filmmaker brings out the creative juices for the actor unlike any other helmer that he's worked with in his career.
