Live Flesh

Directed by Pedro Almodóvar

Ruth Rendell adapted by Almodóvar is bound to provide a few surprises. This melodramatic thriller revolves around two hunky men whose lives have become entangled thanks to the bullet shot by the younger cops which paralysed the older one(Bardem). Caught between them is the initial cause of the trouble (Neri) who has since become Bardem’s wife. LIVE FLESH is a sexy tragi-comic exploration of desire, revenge, and machismo. The new Pedro Almodóvar film HABLE CON ELLA plays at Cornerhouse from Fri 23 Aug.
