Feminist film? Are you kidding me? Two women try to commit suicide after breaking up with their lovers, which invariably signals that women's identity is defined by their relationships, right? Furthermore, every main female character minus two fawn over the same man and basically go insane over him. Can someone please explain to me how that's even remotely feminist? Besides that, we finally get a film that's not a pornography, so that's a nice change. The story is decent, but too many things happen without explanation that drive the plot in a very roundabout way to reach its conclusion. The editing is not only predictable but mundane and the lighting in nearly every scene is extremely flat. There's just no depth to the film whatsoever, which makes it boring.
Finally an incredible film from Almodóvar. Everything up to this point has failed to impress me considering how revered he is. When he can make a film like this I understand why critics like him. This is the first truly great film from Almodóvar.
