A feminist comedy with real bite; it always brings down the house.
In Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Mr. Almodovar sets out to charm rather than shock. That he succeeds should not come as a surprise.
This is painless sexual politics, a fiendish comedy full of prickles and pain and the bright shiny pinks of a matador's cape.
Women slinks devilishly (and expertly) between farce, absurdism and tragedy.
A film whose overwhelming liveliness provides an enthusiastic, ebullient rebuke to the despair of its characters.
Almodovar's most accomplished and most commercially successful comedy to date.
The film's color scheme is like a makeup counter display, and the narrative has the same sort of spirit, with dabs of humor that gloss over or disrupt the heroine's grief.
The gold standard for Almodovar's screwball farces.
An exuberant comedy of manners drunk on its own outlandish melodrama.
The movie is a great introduction to Almodóvar's world...
An incisive, fast-paced romp with the serious theme of obsessive love.
Probably Pedro Almodovar's most completely accessible film -- certainly it's one of his funniest and most popular works.
A hilarious farce by Pedro Almodóvar with over-colored kitsch visuals and a hysterical story full of eccentric characters in absurd situations - and it is impossible not to laugh at that extravagant taxi and the many times that someone throws something out of the window.
Slap-happy, fun, riotous - one of Almodovar's best stings with enjoyment.
A bizarre black comedy that sometimes wanders into screwball territory. It is a tale about a group of women all suffering in their way. Being the first outright comedy I have seen from Almodovar, I had a hard time allowing myself to laugh and spent the first half of the film soley trying to analyze the color schemes & feminist themes. It wasn't until about half way through that I realized that while analysis is important, Almodovar wants us to have fun as well. Once I took my critic hat off, I found myself having a good time.The acting, while incredibly zany, is really good and the script is absurdly funny.
I'll need to see it again to really appreciate it's offbeat nature, but until then I had a good time with these funny albeit forlorn women.
A very funny sex comedy that unfolds like a farce, in which every character's life intersects with the others', whether they know so or not. Charming film deserving of its Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award nomination in 1989, and a great introduction to Almodovar, who has become one of the seminal directors of our time.
