Great movie. Very creepy and twisted. I have seen most of Almodovar's movies, and it's amazing to see a director/writer who made Atame, and Women on the verge of nervous breakdown evolve into someone who produced this movie and Bad Education.
His movie making taste has changed quite drastically over the years, although it seems with his upcoming works, he's trying to dial it back.

Don't even bother. It is one of the worst movies I have seen in years. Not only the script but the photography, the acting, everything looks so fake. The dialogue is terrible. No se molesten

This is just an amazing drama/thriller. Banderas is fantastic. If you want to watch a twisted revenge movie this is definitely on the A list. Wow! Chilling and twisted minus the Hollywood gore. This movie would make Alfred Hitchcock proud! Highly recommend.

In general I like Almodovar's work, but this movie is quite boring.
