When first viewing the official website, I was slightly dubious as to what I should expect due to the rather fluff visuals, but after obtaining a copy from DVDGO online store from Spain, I was really delighted by this sparkling little jewel. The story line presents facts and fiction to create a colorful, playful comedy drama from eighties Spain. Complete with a segment from Almodovar and MacNamara performing a song from Laberinto De Pasiones spliced in to add just the right spice to continued this period piece that is presented with sparks flying and heels raising. Be on the lookout for this gem at your local theater or rent it when it becomes available, and you'll make just find yourself heading out to the local club scene sporting a nun's habit and shouting LIBERTAD for all the world to hear!
