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

"First viewing - May 25th This one was amusing enough, but fell short of greatness for me. I dug the way the ensemble's respective arcs play out, and the film is a fairly light look at love and relationships. It's not great but definitely worth a look, and I might sit through it again at some point though I don't think I need to."
