Ironically a male gaze film about female solidarity. Beautifully constructed as only Almodóvar can.
El clásico juego de roles con un agradable desarrollo #aloalmodovar
Favorite Almodovar film-perhaps because it's so accessible with the right mix of comedy. P. Cruz is terrific. Learn some Spanish, compas.
One of all-female Almodovar's film, with a stunning Penelope Cruz
Excelente película, la narrativa y las actuaciones impecables
Watch it and enjoy the play by Penelope Cruz.

The story of a family and a string of tragic circumstances. Really worth a watch.
It has a twisting story told in such a relaxed and colorful manner.
