Pedro Almodóvar directs Javier Cámara, Darío Grandinetti and Leonor Watling in this Spanish arthouse hit about men in love with coma victims.
One of Pedro’s more shocking and ambiguous productions. It also has a grace and restraint that made it easier for me to digest. Confrontational subject matter and blurred lines don’t really phase me in fiction, arthouse cinema should rarely conform or comfort, but this explores its dark and unusual passions with an accessible mastery.
