    Sometimes foreign comedies have something lost in translation, but this had me laughing at loud at certain parts. Love me some Almodovar! 5 years 4 months ago

    Highly regarded as Pedro's best of his early stuff - it didn't grab me as some of the overlooked ones from that period such as ''Matador'' and especially ''Tacones lejanos/High Heels'' , but it has enough quirkiness and visual attraction to keep attention. Almodovar really knows how to draw the viewer into his world and tends to pull the best out of his actors. 5 months 2 weeks ago
