What better place than the Cannes film festival for actor Antonio Banderas and film-maker Pedro Almodovar to revive a long-dormant collaboration.
It is more than 20 years since the Spanish superstars’ last outing together.
Their new film, “The Skin I Live In” combines horror, suspense and plastic surgery gone wild. But that did not stop the old partners from playing the fool for the press.
Having previously won best screenplay and best director awards at Cannes, Almodovar hopes this modern take on “Frankenstein” will earn him the ultimate best picture prize.
