Trivia Gael García Bernal fired off an angry riposte to New York Times reporter Lynn Hirschberg after she claimed that he had fallen out with Pedro Almodóvar over filming the explicit homosexual love scenes in the film. Bernal wanted it on record that he had had absolutely no reservations about taking the role. See more »
Goofs When Burenguer declines Ignacio's story over the phone, he says that he wouldn't be accepting it for "Short Stories of the 80's". According to his story, it would have had to been at least 1977, three years before the '80s let alone before a compilation of stories from the '80s would be released. See more »

Quotes Ignacio: I think I've just lost my faith at this moment, so I no longer believe in God or hell. As I don't believe in hell, I'm not afraid. And without fear I'm capable of anything.
