a classic Almodóvar's filme with beautiful performances, everybody should watch this classic of Spanish's cinematography
Touching and beautiful. A painful story about women - what Almodovar does best
Almodovar is a cinematic genius in so many ways. Impossible to do him justice in a few words.
A filmic masterpiece on performative gender. Uniquely opening a window to the humanity of the marginalized.
Really liked the chemistry the actresses had and the way relationships are portrayed.
My very first Almodovar. One of the few films about AIDS that doesn't get pathetic
Unique story about the women universe. This instantly got into my "best of all time" movie list
Heartwrenching. Watched it with my mother and truly made us weep
Emotional, dazzling, sweeping. Almodovar deals with motherhood and it is a cinematic fuss.
