Basically, it is thanks to this movie that Almodovar started to gain some ... read more

She helps Huma manage Nina, the co-star and Huma's lover, and she becomes Rosa's caretaker during a dicey pregnancy. With echoes of Lorca, "All About Eve," and "Stree ... (more)

A good movie

“Pedro Almodovar is one of those directors that I have always admired but he never became a personal favorite of mine.
