The Skin I Live In
This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.
Ever since his wife was burned in a car crash, Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon, has been interested in creating a new skin with which he could have saved her. After twelve years, he manages to cultivate a skin that is a real shield against every assault. In addition to years of study and experimentation, Robert needed three more things: no scruples, an accomplice and a human guinea pig.
Scruples were never a problem. Marilia, the woman who looked after him from the day he was born, is his most faithful accomplice. His guinea pig: a mysterious and volatile woman who holds the key to his obsession.
