Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Despite its scalpel-like precision, pic falls short of its titular promise, never quite getting under the skin as it should.
Fresh: Only someone as talented as Almodovar could have mixed such elements without blowing up an entire movie.
Fresh: This film, by turns macabre, melodramatic, and gothic, makes the heart race and the skin crawl.
Fresh: These are questions one is left with -- and that's not an entirely satisfying feeling. Yet it's hard not to be drawn into the story, and even more, into the gorgeous storytelling.
Hooked till the end!
Awesome movie! The plot and actors very good. I almost didn't watch this movie because of it being in foreign language with subtitles but when I saw who was in it Antonio Banderas (sp) and read what the movie was about; it peaked my curiosity and I had to watch and so glad I did! Forgot it was in subtitles after watching ten minutes of the movie! If you are a little twisted and aren't afraid of taboo issues- this is the movie for you. A must see.
This is a great movie..amazing and shocking...:))
The movie was amazing! What an ending. And a beginning, fell in love with this dark and twisted movie
