    The more obvious and better ending to this movie: spoiler

    This would be the more outlandish soap-opera ending. And thus more Almodovar-ish.

    Twisted and morbid film that falls in love with its own sense of punishment. Watch how the camera lingers on angles, and the music hangs in the air. This is more a work about revenge than sexuality or the survival of identity - as one character gradually falls for his grief stricken, perverse inflictions, the other struggles to survive it long enough to the final turn. It leaves you wondering who won. A good work and recommended, but more thought provoking than strictly warm or even typically enjoyable. 9 years 2 months ago

    It's strange how you trust characters in films and how they betray you.
    A good film, it could've been stronger, more tense.
    The cinematography however, was interesting and enjoyable.
