This movie certainly represents progresses in many of the most interesting aspects of Almodóvar's earlier works, the radical subjectivity of feelings, emotions and the exaggeration of strange mix of melodrama and comedy. Misunderstandings and confusion, as well as situations of vaudeville make the movie look like a comic farce, but firm touch of Almodovar's gift to make things different, with its... read more
