Washington Post
[Pedro Almodovar] does what he does best-finding poignance in the most melodramatic of modern lifestyles. Full Review
Caryn James
The New York Times
[Almodovar’s] returns to the mordant but sympathetic comedy of his early, best work. Though the new film is not as antic as "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown," it is funny and free of the nasty undertone that has made him seem tired and tiresome lately. Full Review
David Rooney
Variety
Far from abandoning his trademark humor, however, the writer-director skillfully enlists it in the service of an emotional story, charting the heroine's journey from loss and torment to rediscovered strength and hope. Propelled by stellar performances and a script that resonates with intelligence, subtlety and surprises, this is by far Almodovar's best film in years. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
It's a witty, intelligent scramble, and it's beautifully mounted. Full Review
