Kika, a cute cosmetologist, prepares Ramon for funeral when he revives. He proposes to the much older Kika who has his dad as lover. Did Ramon's dad murder his mom? What about the escaped rapist and the PSYCHOlogist video reporter?
Kika, a young cosmetologist, is called to the mansion of Nicolas, an American writer to make-up the corpse of his stepson, Ramon. Ramon, who is not dead, is revived by Kika's attentions and she then moves in with him. They might live happily ever after but first they have to cope with Kika's affair with Nicolas, the suspicious death of Ramon's mother and the intrusive gaze of tabloid-TV star and Ramon's ex-psychologist Andrea Scarface.Written by

The german version of this movie has differences with the original spanish text. The most important one is in that scene at the elevator, when Kika is talking with her friends about Nicolas and Ramon. A friend says: "But you tell us that Nicolas eats your pussy very well" and kika answers: "Ramon also eats my pussy very well". In the german version, the friend says: "But you tell us that Nicolas really knows how to treat a woman" and kika answers: "Also Ramon knows how to treat a woman" See more »

Kind of cute
Over all, I liked this film (especially Alex Casanovas....mmmmm....). Veronica Forque is a unique actress, and I found her unusualness to be refreshing. This movie has Almodovar's typical outrageous characters, but I thought things got a little out of control in the last 15 to 20 minutes, what with the sudden violence. The only other possible misfire in this movie in my humble opinion was the escaped-con ex-porno actor and brother of Rossy de Palma's character, in the rape scene, which was a bit much. Like the last portion of the film, it felt out of sync.
