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.
| Original Score: 5/5

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.

Probably Pedro Almodovar's most completely accessible film -- certainly it's one of his funniest and most popular works.
