Antonio Banderas first achieved international attention in Pedro Almodovar’s 1988 film, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, although the two Spaniards had been working together since Almodovar’s first film in 1982. And who can forget him in Madonna’s Truth or Dare?
His newest film, also directed by Almodovar, opens today. It’s called The Skin I Live In, and is definitely not a romance. Puss in Boots opens next week—no word yet if there’s smooching in it—so October is proving to be a good month for Banderas. Even if it’s not as romantic as we might like.
So we thought we’d step back to an earlier Banderas film to show you a clip of the tango from his 2006 release, Take the Lead. This is definitely a romantic moment.
