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 »
This was the first Almodóvar film that I saw, and I would still say that it's one of his better movies. It's yet another highly unusual film by the Spanish director, filled with weird situations and his typically unorthodox style. The story is actually somewhat flimsy, and I didn't much care about what would happen to the main characters. However, I enjoyed this film because I liked a high number of the silly jokes. Like all Almodóvar films, this definitely isn't for all tastes, but if you like unconventional films, this is a pretty good choice.
