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

Pedro Almodovar is one of those directors that I have always admired but he never became a personal favorite of mine. Indeed, he is what you can call a real author who has created his own style and, therefore, he always got my respect but, honestly, I always had a hard time with his work and this movie was not an exception. Basically, it is a typical example of what he did in the 80's, some colorf... read more

“Pedro Almodovar is one of those directors that I have always admired but he never became a personal favorite of mine. Indeed, he is what you can call a real author who has created his own style and, therefore, he always got my respect but, honestly, I always had a hard time with his work and this movie was not an exception. Basically, it is a typical example of what he did in the 80's, some colorful but also very daft soap-opera with some rather messed up characters. I mean, like in most of his movies, most of the characters are women but does he really provide a positive image of women? It seems that they are all emotional wrecks, impossible to make some sound decisions because they have been manipulated by some douche-bags.

"2.6.2014 Tapahtumapaikkaa käytetään hyvin hyödyksi ja menon voi sanoa olevan ainakin siinä mielessä ihan päällänsä, että kokoajan enemmän tai vähemmän tapahtuu jotain. En kuitenkaan päässyt lähes ollenkaan mukaan itse huumoriin, joka on jotain liian vaisuksi jäävän pikkukivan hassuttelun ja absurdien tilanteiden yhdistelyä. Sellaista vähän kesyä kuitenkin. "

"The oldest of Almodovar's works I've seen. It's inventive and fun and visually interesting in composition and art direction."
