In an archetypal Almodovar world lives are tangled and passions strained,
all with great comic effect. The complex plot involves several women
struggling with difficult men, the police and one another.
The film received an Oscar nomination for best foreign language film and
won the New York Film Critics Circle award as best foreign language film.
Rated R for language and adult situations.
