A Tale of Revenge,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Skin I Live In [DVD]  (DVD)All of Almodovar's films have an interesting take on sexuality and identity, and tend to subvert them in interesting and inventive ways. In this case, a surgeon takes a cruel revenge on the supposed rapist who sent the surgeon's daughter into a spiral of depression ending in her suicide. The crime may have been terrible, but the revenge is more so, though arguably the rapist finally achieves a Pyrrhic victory... of sorts. Would not suit viewers who are squeamish about surgery. Visually, though, it is in the grand manner of Almodovar.
