    Not a serious film but it does show Banderas' potentials!

    One of my favorite Almodovars. The simplicity of a murder love story is just a macguffin for so many complex themes here. Uniquely shot and provocative as fuck, maybe one of the most memorable gay romance films ever.

    Controversial at the time of its release, "Law of Desire" is an intense melodrama centered around a gay love triangle that turns deadly.

    An early masterpiece by Almodóvar for it almost featured all his concurrent themes. Few can be as sexy and wild as this hereafter.

    Desire can take many forms and that's what's discussed in this movie, by the utterly creative Pedro Almodovar. I liked how he described his characters, how they had soul and life, but I can't say I like the way he treated them. He shaped them in the best way possible but I feel he's ruined the movie with some of their choices. Still I found it quite amusing and I'm looking forward to watching more of him in the future. I'm disappointed but still impressed.

    Sexy, twisted, dark - "Law of Desire" is uneven but never boring.

    Otra locura de peli por el Gran Almodóvar, donde Pablo, director medio-famoso, está liado con Juan quien está mudándose a la playa para trabajar en un chiringuito. Luego, su hermana Tina (quien antes era chico, y tiene hija con otro transexual) es un actriz y quiere ponerla como protagonista en su próxima guión. Mientras tanto, conoció a Antonio (un joven Antonio Banderas) quien se enamoró de él aunque normalmente no suele ligar con chicos. Al final, Antonio es un poco loco y toma los asuntos en sus propios manos para asegurar que tiene a Pablo por su mismo (y en este parece un poquito como otra peliculón de Almodóvar con Banderas, 'Átame').
