    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. 6 years 7 months ago

    This is such a fascinating and beautiful film. This is the first time I saw a film by Almodovar and I will definitely give his other films a try. I only did not like Zeca's character, because it was a bit underdeveloped. I simply loved the way in which the story unfolded itself. 1 year 3 months ago
