You are right, when you say, that it's not a usual Almodovar film. Pedro's latest movies contain more homosexuality, more humour and more warmness. This is a seriuos one, and that's why it works. You can't escape from the depressing and weired atmosphere of the film, you have to search for answers after last sequence. Who is Diego, and who is Maria? Are they a perverted couple or are they the gratest lovers since Romeo and Julia? I think that first of all they are lovers, whom the fate has destined to be together. In my interpretation they not perverted, just too perfectionist and realist. They know that, they can't be happier, they are on the top of theire love after that only worse can come : disaffection, old age and slow death. And because they both proud peapole, who always wanted the best (but rarely get it, they decide to have a perfect relationship which ends not with hate and regret as usual, but with lust, love and death. Some find the film weired, but can't deny the beauty of how the film ends.
