a pivotal and unmissable piece of the Almodóvar puzzle, a romp that is Pedro at his young and kinky best.

Lessons of Darkness

Almodóvar's affection for his characters ... makes his engagingly loopy narrative more than a simple Telemundo-on-acid joke.

What it lacks in depth, 'Law of Desire' makes up in surface energy, with a lively cast, a turbulent plot and a textbook-worthy collection of case histories.
