You could have killed yourself!
That was the idea. I'm desperate.
So am I, but I don't jump off terraces.

Truly wonderful and insightful romp which alternates between tragedy and farce seamlessly without ever missing a beat. Excellent performances by the entire cast contribute mightily as does a first-class camp score. This was the first Almodovar film I ever saw, and it made it a requisite for me to see each new one as it comes out. The man is a genius!
