Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Almodovar uses the characters' unlikely predicaments to show how we define ourselves by narration, but his story is so overdetermined that ultimately the two men seem as constrained as their brain-dead sweethearts."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's a brave movie and a mature undertaking."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"no other current director blends comedy and drama as smoothly or with as much flair"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Very few directors could get away with making a film like this, but Almodovar not only gets away with it, he delivers a masterpiece."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij,
"It's another wild yet thoughtful look at the meaning of life and sexuality from Almodovar."
‑ Mark Robison, Reno Gazette-Journal
"It's Almodovar's most mature and mysterious movie."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"Good, but not classic Almodovar."
‑ Judith Prescott, Hollywood Reporter
"Humanity is intricate, contradictory, fathomless here, and the filmmaking just as rich."
‑ Matthew Sorrento, PopMatters
"Almodovar continues to refine the form of melodrama ... without sacrificing one iota of emotional texture or resonance."
‑ Lance Goldenberg, Weekly Planet (Tampa, FL)
"Even when Aldomovar is obviously showing off, we're convinced that he cares."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"The film combines sensuality, spirituality and sheer joy in storytelling in marvellously harmonious proportions."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"It is a singularly impressive work, able to generate laughs one moment and tears the next."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"I found it slow to get into. But I hung in there and am glad I did because eventually it grabbed me and I ended up enjoying it."
‑ Tony Medley,
"Almodovar beautifully evokes trust and sacrifice."
‑ Geoff Carter, Las Vegas Weekly
"Like all his [Pedro Almodovar's] work, it's jarring and provocative to say the least."
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
