What Have I Done To Deserve This? (1984)

Pedro Almodóvar directs Carmen Maura, Angel de Andres-Lopez and Chus Lampreave in this kitchen sink farce where a cleaning lady watches her family fall apart in a mundane world of sex and drugs.

I don’t think Almodóvar will ever direct a film I love but I am enjoying these early comedies much more than I expected. They go in random directions but the kink and strangeness never seems forced. While not laugh-out-loud funny I was certainly never bored. The bursts of sex and violence amongst the everyday worked really well.
