Manuela: "¿Y el Chanel este es autentico?"
Agrado: "No. ¿Como voy a gastar medio millón en un Chanel autentico con la de hambre que hay en el mundo? Yo lo único que tengo de verdad son los sentimientos...y los litros de silicona que me pesan como cristales."
Wow. I mean... wow. Truly a beautiful cinematic experience. The colors, the characters, the music all completely resonated with me on a very deep level. This is only my 3rd Almodovar, and yet I'm already convinced of his genius. A truly gifted filmmaker. Oh, and I loved the dedication at the end.
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film of the year, this is a richly resonant, colorful melodrama par excellence from Almodóvar which combines warmth, laughter and tears and explicitly references All About Eve and A Streetcar Named Desire. It's a stunning valentine to femininity and motherhood with roles of a lifetime for a dazzling mostly all-female cast. I loved every melodramatic second of it..
