Loss. Obsession. Madness.

  • Excerpt: Pedro Almodóvar's macabre tale bears many thematic similarities to Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo." The director's oft-explored themes of sexuality and gender identity are added to the mix to create a style that is uniquely and unmistakably 'Almodóvar.

What a mix !

  • Excerpt: I saw this Blu-ray here in Brasil twice in two days. I use an Infocus 1080p in a 120" screen (the wall itself). The video quality is amazing. The sound is excellent. The movie is a mix of "Frankstein", "The Silence of The Lambs", some Tarantino things, what else? A lot, no doubt.

Gorgeous film

  • Conclusion: I'd just like to counter-balance the 1 star review (nothing wrong with not liking it or having a different oppinion) by saying I really enjoyed it. Excellent sick and twisted story of a psycho plastic surgeon. Gorgeously directed by Pedro Almodovar.

Dreadful Tosh!

Kinematoscope, play.com
5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: This is without any shadow of a doubt one of the most pointless cinema experiences of my life. The plot is dreadful nonsense with the time-frames twisted inside out in what I can only think is a desperate effort to make it interesting, .... it fails! The characters are one dimensional & paper thin.

Who are we?

  • Conclusion: The beginning of the movie I really didn't know what was going on, it was hard to know exactly what the characters were doing, who they were and why anything was happening. As the plot thickens all becomes apparent and rather shocking.

Weird but wonderful

5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Not for the feint hearted, but full of twists and turns throughout, and a truly original plot makes this a future classic. The filming is beautiful, and the acting top rate. Saw this at the cinema with three friends, and it is true to say that I was the only one that came out having enjoyed...

black fairy tale with a twist

Deb, Flicks

  • Summary: The trailer had me expecting Silence of the Lambs meets Frankenstein and I wasn't thinking I'd enjoy it. The Spanish setting, culture and architecture transport a kiwi viewer and allows belief to be suspended for this black fairy tale.

sick and disgusting...just how I like it!

Moose, Flicks
22 February 2012
  • Summary: A bit weird, sick and disgusting...but quite watchable and remains interesting throughout, which is a rare thing considering Antonio Banderas is in the lead role :P...worth a look if you aren't too straight laced. 3 stars.
