Almodovar uses the characters' unlikely predicaments to show how we define ourselves by narration, but his story is so overdetermined that ultimately the two men seem as constrained as their brain-dead sweethearts.

It's Almodovar's most mature and mysterious movie.

Pedro Almodovar bring more one intelligent and breathtaking drama, with very human characters.

Almodovar is a genius, so enough said? Plot twists are superb. Acting is wonderful. The idea that sex can awaken a sleeping maiden is marvelous--the idea that you can love someone in a totally one-sided relationship is....scary. But see it once, and see it several times to get everything out of it. It's a nice discussion on what romantic love really is.
