Almodovar (who has a cameo as a leather-jacketed transvestite rock singer) has already learned (somewhat) how to pull off such a difficult act, by treating the potentially offensive with such cartoonish abandon that it becomes ridiculous to take offense.

Though coarser and cheaper than Almodovar's later efforts, this comic orgy is prototypically Pedrovian.

An early and rather choice effort from Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar.
