Critic Reviews for Kika
Using his typical assortment of aggressive female characters, Almodovar spends more time on the fashions of his protagonists than on their souls.
Kika is actually one of this film maker's more buoyant recent efforts, a sly, rambunctious satire that moves along merrily until it collapses -- as many Almodovar films finally do -- under the weight of its own clutter.
It doesn't matter that Kika doesn't make sense -- doesn't even try to make sense. It's just so much fun to watch.
Almodovar's central parody is strong enough to save this film from floundering too much or too often. It's daring and nasty, but rarely brilliant.
Something alarming has happened to Almodovar: He has become commonplace and predictable.
Audience Reviews for Kika
Pointless. The trash being used to "make laugh". Stupid people, things and situations supposed to be funny. After half hour, I simply turned it off. What a waste of time!
My least favourite of Almodovar?s so far, the plot seemed quite weak and there was very little excitement to it. Almodovar gave some added controversy here, by making a rape scene into a bit of a comedy moment, I would be interested to see what people?s comments are and how many will feel it reached over the controversial line?
Irreverent and hilarious, KIKA is Pedro Almodovar's craziest film. Back are the usual Almodovar elements: colors, dramedy, sexual deviation, murder. The film works thanks to the funny script by Pedro, and the amazing performance by Veronica Forqué as the title character. The rest of the cast is very good too: Peter Coyote, Rossy De Palma, Victoria Abril (in a marvelous role) and Àlex Casanovas.
