Tacones Lejanos (High Heels) Reviews

October 9, 2019
Trying to combine drama and comedy in one movie often results in a bittersweet compromise. But in High Heels, Spanish director Pedro Almodovar mixes farce and passion in a way that heightens both extremes.

Despite the presence of two great actresses, High Heels is a disappointing film, as a murder mystery and mother-daughter melodrama.

Not funny, suspenseful, or original.

Unlike this director's best work, High Heels has no real mirth and not even enough energy to keep it lively.

Witty and snappy Almodovar....as usual, but still great fun.

The director knows what he wants to say, but isn't too sure how to go about saying it.

It's bright and spunky and playfully melodramatic, but something's missing.

Pedro Almodovar's films are an acquired taste, and with High Heels I am at last beginning to acquire it.
