An average movie

Nowadays Pedro Almodovar is still considered as the most important Spanish director but, back in the 90’s, his specialty was some rather extravagant dramedies involving some rather colorful characters. This movie was basically one of them and, even though it was not bad at all, it wasn’t really one of his best. Penélope Cruz was not yet his muse back in those days and, at the time, it was Vic... read more

Description: Spanish director Pedro Almodovar spins out enough frenetic material for four normal movies in this penetrating satire. Peter Coyote costars as Nicholas, an American writer living in Spain whose wife has killed herself, and whose stepson, Ramon (Alex Casanova), is obsessive and narcoleptic. Ramon's ex-girlfriend, Andrea 'Scarface' Garacortada is a TV show host for a program that could be called 'Spain's Most Violent Home Videos'.

My movie year 2016 (361 movies items)

"2.3. (VHS) Kika satirisoi yhteiskunnan, median ja yksittäisen ihmisen suhtautumista rikollisuuteen tervanmustan huumorin läpi. Törkyjournalistille murhaajan kiinnijäämistä tärkeämpää on tältä mahdollisesti irtoava mehukas haastattelu, raiskauksen uhri puolestaan toteaa "tätä käy joka päivä, nyt oli minun vuoroni." Huolestuttavinta filmissä on, etteivät Almodovarin liki surrealistisessa mittapuussa käsittelemät asiat lopulta kovinkaan kaukana todellisuudesta ole."
