Weird, bizarre, crazy... a piece of genius.
31 May 1999 | by (Barcelona(summer), NY (winter)) – See all my reviews

The most incredible movie I've seen recently. I can't describe it. It's not just a simple movie, but a feeling and a pure emotional experience in the deepest hell of melodrama. Now I understand latin people better. And I love 'em more. Simply the best spanish movie I've ever seen. Absolutely great! Don't miss it.
