Overview
From critically acclaimed, erotically candid writer/director Pedro Almodóvar (TIE ME UP! TIE ME DOWN!, WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN)) comes a raw, seductive tale "brimming with lust, betrayal and murder" (Rolling Stone). Based on a novel by British mystery writer Ruth Rendell, LIVE FLESH is "superbly acted, strikingly photographed and just plain terrific" (USA Today)!

When naive, lovestruck Victor (Liberto Rabal) attempts to seduce beautiful and wealthy but strung-out junkie Elena (Francesca Neri), all he gets for his trouble is a one-way, six-year ticket to prison, where he concentrates on strengthening his mind, his body...and his desire for vengeance on the man who put him there. After his release, Victor crosses paths with Elena, who is as beautiful as ever since she cleaned up her act. Still madly in love with her, Victor will stop at nothing to win her over even if means revenge — for Elena has married David (Javier Bardem), the cop who sent him to prison!
