I saw this movie while living in Spain. I was only able to go to the movies once a week, but loved it so much that i went back the next. It deals with such an interesting period of social conflict in Spain, and is absolutely hilarious at the same time. As it is a Spanish film, some background is useful of the terrible occurrences known in Spain as 22 F. It is wonderfully done. It contains wonderful music, cinematography, and plot/theme developments. It focuses on the cultural period in Spain right after the dictatorship (early 80s) and deals with a girl faced with many choices about herself and about her own personal freedoms. She is breaking away from a restrictive society, yet having conflict with her love of and loyalty to her family. It is rare that a comedy so funny deals with such a strong theme in such a strong way.
