Pedro Almodóvar directs this revenge tale based on Thierry Jonquet’s 1995 novel ‘Mygale’. Antonio Banderas stars as Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon whose attempts to cultivate a new form of human skin have led to years of experimentation on a live woman, Vera (Elena Anaya). But as the story of Vera’s past emerges, it becomes clear that Robert has a questionable agenda of his own as he manipulates her face and body for his own purposes.
