  • The Making of The Skin I Live In seven-part documentary
  • Q&A with Pedro Almodóvar
  • On the Red Carpet: New York Premiere featurette
The Skin I Live In streets on March 6th, 2012.

Jafar, don't mean to disappoint you, but chances are this will be Region Locked A. Sony doesn't own the rights for this worldwide, so they're bound to lock it. However, It is coming out on Region B in the UK (December 26) and France (December 17), so that's gotta cover you.

It was a pretty good movie. More commercial/accessible than usual Almodovar fare.

Thanks for the heads-up, Joen, but the European releases will do little for me as I'm in Region C

I've seen (and loved) the movie and want this so bad!

"More commercial/accessible than usual Almodovar fare."

Hmm... I didn't think so, in the least.

In any case, I hope the promotional opportunity will be taken here to release at least a couple of other Almodovar titles on Blu-ray, alongside it.

This the BEST film of the year, ahead of even Melancholia and We Need to Talk About Kevin. I've seen it three times in the cinema since August, and even though the twist is only jaw-dropping the first time you see it, it more than holds up on repeat viewings, and you really get to marvel at how brilliantly it's been constructed by Almodovar. Also, every time I've seen the film in the cinema, people audibly gasp at several scenes--always fun.

The extras look pretty skimpy on this, though. Any word on the UK Blu-ray's extras? I've seen the film twice in the UK and once in the US, and the digital cinema transfer used in the UK was absolutely stunning, which I assume is what they're using for that blu-ray release. Might be a better bet to go with the UK (and it's out in two weeks!)

I consider The Skin I Live In to be one of Pedro Almodovar's best films of all and will gladly acquire it at a reasonable price.

Agreed Cvalda. BEST film of the year. Possibly Almodóvar's best film overall. I too have seen it three times in the cinema and it works fantastically every time. The visual details are stunning and there are fantastic performances all around.

But hoping for some more extras than what is listed in the article above. Either way, blind buy this. It's worth it!

First Almodóvar movie I won't be buying
Maybe it's because I grew up watching Mexican soap operas, this story was beyond ridiculous.

This was by far one of the best films I watched this year. It's sick, twisted, mysterious, and just all-around great.

This is one of Almodovar's best, and if it's under $20, I'll certainly buy it on the first day.

You'll buy/have bought any other Almodóvar film, but THIS one is ridiculous?

Okaaaaaaay...

Tell me, do you ever WATCH the other ones or do you just buy them?

"This is one of Almodovar's best, and if it's under $20, I'll certainly buy it on the first day."

The MSRP is a staggering $45.99, so I don't see it being under $20 on release day.
