Today we have on our blog a new Almodovar's masterpiece. Probably the most technical movie filmed by this Manchegan director. Impeccable production, performances and music. Almost perfect. 100% author's cinema. In this movie, Almodovar captivate us until the ending. With dense dialogues and a little bit complex plot, the spectator will enjoy with three different parts: the beginning, with the Vera Cruz experiment (2nd in time), the middle part (1st in time) and ending (3rd in time). This long story (more than 2 hrs.) in, undoubtedly, a challenge for the director. But this challenge is favourable to Pedro cause the final result is excellent. In the against side, I can say that maybe he “abuse” of Almodovar's clichés (females, problematic families, impossible loves...) I think it's no necessary to use this resources in each movie. The plot is strong enough to convince the most pure film lover.
To remember: The scene in the shop with Agustin Almodovar trying to give his wife's clothes.
To forget: Maybe unnecessary clichés a bit forced.
