    Nice cinematography. Storyline flowed well. Relationship with mother is poignant and strikes a cord. I'm a bit conservative, thus not too fond of Almodovar's typical heavy handedness with gender identity and drug use.

    Disappointing. The reviews got me there, kept me in my seat awaiting a worthwhile story but frankly, I guess it comes down to his life & story, and yes, it totally bored me.

    This is a masterpiece. A directorial triumph for Almodovar and a role of a lifetime for Banderas. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and above all - it made my day. Simply the most heartwarming film I've seen all year.

    Almodovar's stories always unwind in expected ways, and this is no exception. I really liked the way memory and love and decisions were woven into this one.

    Beautifully filmed and acted. A little slow in the muddle, but that didnt detract from the whole.
