Ratings & Reviews

view all
  • The actors are outstanding, illuminating four different views of loneliness. But it's Camara's tour-de-force performance that anchors the film, that shocks and unnerves us. show more

  • Beautiful (sometimes sublimely so), daring (sometimes outrageously so), seriously crazed and terrifically funny.

  • Almodóvar has made a powerfully moving film about men who think they want to lose themselves in their women, then are startled to realize that they're the ones who have been comatose. show more
