Pedro Almodovar started his career as the Spanish equivalent of John Waters, maybe a little less tacky/trashy but still fairly trashy. It was the late 70's early 80's though and Punk was rife. Essentially, that is what his first films are, punk films. Bending the rules of social acceptance but also showing the rules up for the ridiculous ideals that they are. I wouldn't say delicate subjects are taken lightly but you do need to remind yourself that this is a satire or you may be offended. Personally, I prefer his later stuff but the early work is very likable all the same. It's certainly very funny, the policeman's twin getting beaten up was hilarious.

The earliest of Almodovars finds the director trying to deal with his then lack of budget and craftsmanship, but it also includes some incredibly wicked and witty ideas which would later become his trademarks. In this case one can see these ideas scattered in a film which lacks an axis. Nevertheless, the seeds are planted, though one might neeed a magnifying glass to see them.

Almodovar began his career with this gritty tale of liberated women, and never looked back...

A hodgepodge of edgy sex jokes, poor camerawork, and bad lighting.

O primeiro filme de Almodovar não é um primor e chega longe de estreias memoravéis como Tarantino e Stephen Frears, vale pela curiosidade do acompanhar o nascimento de algumas das marcas registradas do diretor, como o uso do vermelho, trilhas sonoras e toda a gama de personagens bizarros.

Um Almodovar rebelde e ainda muito crú, onde chocar valia mais que todo o resto. Dá pra pular sem problemas!

bad bad bad! but definitely entertaining if you can stomach crudeness.

One of Almodovar's first films, with high influence from the situation of Madrid by those years.
This film is astonishing. Memorable scenes fill it, some of them quite disgusting I should say. It has no clear script, and so, it's confusing during some scenes of the film.
Without a doubt this film is Almodovar in his pure essence, but it's evident that he had to improve his technique, the film seems to be made by an amateur.
Not a bad film anyway, I think no one could say that he/she felt disappointed after watching it, I would say I felt kind of shocked and kind of "what the hell?".
