A straight up Crowd Pleaser from Almodovar. The neuroeses run deep here, but not really a ton of memorable characters. The Mom and Sister were a straight up vaudeville duo. I mean the man is brilliant...but he's covered a lot of this ground before, with higher stakes, weirder moments and more indelible images.
I think it is safe to say that this is a lesser film by Almdóvar. The story itself is not too original, and at times feels rather confusing. Sometimes it seems there are important details missing. Nonetheless, the film features some of the funniest dialogue by Almodóvar. When Rossy de Palma and Chus Lampreave begin their banter, there is no force to stop them. Aside from that, the visuals are perfect, as always.
A return to form somewhat, Rather subdued film as usual very colorful and i liked that it was a story of love somewhat from a older perspective but showed no matter what your age. You can still be a fool for love. Though it is made bythe great master Pedrom Almodiovar. It is a slight piece of work conpared to his other films. Still, A slight work from him is still wonderful and interesting
