A plastic surgeon (ANTONIO BANDERAS) keeps a beautiful woman captive at his fortified home, performing skin experiments on her in his laboratory.

His housekeeper’s criminal son turns up and rapes the captive.

The surgeon shoots him and an intriguing history unfolds, involving the suicides of the surgeon’s wife and daughter, a sex change and a woman remade in the image of the surgeon’s late wife.

This film from acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar will blow you away with its beautiful styling and brilliant storyline but there’s also a message about identity, gender and desire.

Spanish with English subtitles.
