Q: What’s the movie about?

Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya, Marisa Paredes, Jan Cornet, Bianca Suarez, Barbara Lennie, Roberto Alamo, Susi Sanchez, Eduard Fernandez, Jose Luis Gomez, Fernando Cayo
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A:Proceed with Caution. This one is for the hardest of hard core Almadovar fans only. Right when you thought he couldn't get any crazier, he completely loses his mind.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: If you have very dark and demented sensibilities.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: I feel like crying when I look at Elena Anaya flawless skin, and remember that all youthful skin ever gave me was pimples.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: While we're on the topic of Elena Anaya, let's just give this film the ever-coveted award of Miss Universe. I can't imagine any contestant in the world pretty enough to beat her.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: Speaking of beauty, Antonio Banderas at age 51 hasn't lost an ounce of it. Also, it's nice to see him still getting a chance to do a serious role once in a while, since he can really only be taken seriously in Spanish. And after Puss in Boots comes out, our ability to not laugh when he speaks English will only get worse.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Almadovar stays true to his personal style, which combines simplicity with total oddness.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: It's based on book, and you can't help but wonder if the book pulls off this bizarre non-linear tale of a convoluted insane family any more logically or believably than its surreal film counterpart does.
Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?
A: Balloons and Steamers! This is our 500th review!!!
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
A: The Skin I Live In Trailer
