A nightclub singer seeks refuge with gay nuns on dope in a Madrid convent.
Almodóvar had to be so brave to do this film in 1983, near the end of the Spanish transition to democracy.
Contains alot of transgressional delights that would wreak havoc in later Almodovar movies, but sadly doesn't completely come together. There's almost no tension to this movie what so ever!
Everything in this movie shouts Almodóvar. I like to see his older movies, sloppy, sometimes with editing mistakes. It makes him/it genuine. 4 stars.
Oeuvre délicieusement iconoclaste, délurée au possible et d'un constant humour dévastateur, ce film "bizarre" et décapant est une vraie jubilation... www.cinefiches.com
Great ensemble comedy full of crackpot nuns whose behaviours and hypocrasies indicate they shouldn't be part of a nunnery at all. Yet here we are. Heavy on the loose plot threads and surreal non sequiturs, but it's all in service to the mood.
Nuns just wanna have fun!
