Pedro Almodavar's 'Bad Education' provides a spellbinding insight into how reality is transformed by fantasy. The film takes a little time to find it's stride, but WOW does it hit you for six when it does. The cinematography here is equally breath-taking, the use of vibrant colours framed by typical film noir neutrals. The performances are great all-round, especially Garcia-Bernal who impressively... read more

I was fascinated by this movie, above all, at the beginning but then, as usual with Almodovar, the story kind of lost focus, dealing with weird charaters with eccentric behaviors. Still, the acting, especially by Gael Garcia Bernal, is quite amazing and Almodovar definitely kwnows how to direct a movie. Definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Almodovar's work.

"A film director is given a script written by his childhood friend, his first love, about their childhood at this school run by priests. What he later learns is that this story is not one of truth."

"Katolisen kirkon koulukodissa tekopyhä pappi + muu henkilökunta huolehtii skideistään omin tavoin. Koulupojat, joilla on yhteinen kiva harrastus, eli meisselit, erotetaan toisistaan just kun ne alko olee in love. Myöhemmin huomataan millaisia traumoja lapsuus on jättänyt jälkeensä. Voimakkaan sanoman omaava draama, Almodovarilta. Ohjaus sekä näyttelijöiden suoritukset olivat loistavia. "

" After watching "Talk to Her", it was sort of nice to get back to wild and complicated Almodóvar that I know and love. I actually got a little lost and started the film over from the beginning after hiding the cheesy-puffs so that I wouldn't get distracted. I like the film and I especially love how well this film works as a mirror of the film "The Skin I Live In". How the main character of the film is actually not present in the film. Just the memories and ideals that have shaped an identity "
