Pedro Almod?var is a colorful and exuberant director who often uses Spanish beauty Pen?lope Cruz as his muse. The story centers on a screenwriter and former film director who has lost his sight in an automobile accident as he recounts the scandal that haunts his memory. Cruz, radiant as ever, is the actress who comes between her two infatuated lovers. Almod?var uses an entertaining structure filled with flashbacks which are used with playful precision to reveal the truth about these characters.
A movie within a movie within a movie?poignancy that stings and whimsy that bites. - Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
