La piel que habito (2011)
Profesora de Yoga en TV: There's a place where you can take refuge. A place inside you, a place to which no one else has access, a place that no one can destroy.
Vera Cruz: writing on the wall: I breathe. I breathe. I breathe. I know I breathe.
Vicente: [about Norma] I don't think I actually raped her.
Robert Ledgard: You "don't think?" Have you lost your memory?
Vicente: I'd taken a lot of pills. I can hardly remember it.
Robert Ledgard: Well, I didn't take anything, and I'll never forget it!
Presidente del Instituto de Biotecnología: You know the application of transgenic therapy in humans is strictly forbidden!
Robert Ledgard: Yes, I do. And forgive me, but it seems the ultimate paradox.
[Dr. Ledgard pauses, staying silent while a symposium member walks by]
Robert Ledgard: We intervene in everything around us. Meat, clothes, vegetables, fruit, everything! Why not use scientific advances to improve our species? You know how many diseases we could cure with transgenesis? Or the genetic malformations that could be avoided?
Presidente del Instituto de Biotecnología: Don't continue. I know the list by heart and I think of it every day.
Norma: Clothes make me feel claustrophobic. I wish I could stay naked all the time.
Robert Ledgard: How are you so sure of what I feel if even I don't know?
Marilia: Because I know you as if I'd borne you.
Robert Ledgard: What's going on?
Vera Cruz: I'm going to kill you.
Robert Ledgard: This is a joke, right?
Vera Cruz: Call it what you want.
Robert Ledgard: But you promised!
Vera Cruz: I lied.
[the policeman tells her Vincente has probably run away]
Madre de Vicente: He promised to be back for dinner.
Robert Ledgard: [as he shows Vera 'her' new body] It's a pity you can't see your whole body.
[fondling 'her' breasts]
Robert Ledgard: They don't seem pneumatic now, do they? They're like drops of water sliding along a glass surface.
Robert Ledgard: If you wanted to die you would have cut your jugular.
Marilia: Their fathers were very different but they were both born insane. It's my fault.
