Elena Anaya stars in this twisted tale of sex, revenge, and gender-reassignment surgery as Vera, the frequently nude, frequently operated upon captive of demented plastic surgeon Robert Ledgard Antonio Banderas. Elena bares boobs in six scenes on the operating table, in bed with Antonio, and even being assaulted by a freaky tiger-man. As a bonus, we get an excellent view of her round rump when Antonio comes to save her from the striped weirdo. The skin I live in just grew about 6 inches! Nude - as Vera Cruz.

Impeccably filmed and laden with intriguing, thorny ideas, The Skin I Live In is nonetheless a glassy, curiously reserved affair comprised of equal parts camp and melodrama. In his isolated Toledo villa, El Cigarral, a brilliant, stern, and obsessive surgeon, Dr. Robert Ledgard Antonio Banderas , is working on an indestructible, artificial skin. In flashbacks, we learn of the motivating loss in his life: his wife was burned nearly to death in a car accident, and put herself out of her misery while he worked desperately to save her. His daughter was confined to a mental asylum and eventually passed away too, an event Ledgard blames on her being raped.
A guy kisses her as he reaches up her dress to pull down her panties and then begins to have sex with her. She then tries to push him away and he slaps her, knocking her out. We then see her topless on her back as the guy covers her up with her bra and dress. Elena Anaya wearing a bodysuit as she lies on the floor while a guy in a tiger suit straddles her and tears Elena's suit open to expose her breasts.
