A rambunctious dark comedy. An unbalanced but alluring former mental patient takes a B-movie porn star prisoner in the hopes of convincing her to marry him. A highly unconventional romance that came on the spike heels of Almodovar's international sensation Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, this is a splashy, sexy central work in the career of one of the world's most beloved and provocative auteurs.

Hard to believe the story of this one, but it is Almie. shed your inhibitions, loosen your belt, and prepare to have a real good time. the second disc has the cast singing an upbeat inspiring song called Resistire!, that I particularly enjoyed, as it was live.

I've never seen a story quite like this. Became slightly predictable, but I was still enthralled by it. It was great to see such a young Antonio Banderas! Who doesn't love a strange foreign film??

I enjoyed this. Light-hearted, feel-good stuff. You know all along that the ending will be happy.

A rather silly and vulgar film, but well made.

A highly enjoyable romantic comedy with an imaginative script, solid direction, and excellent performances. Antonio Banderas is especially good as the equally innocent and devilish orphan out to find a life for himself.

It's unfortunate that this film is considered controversial because of a sex scene and candid shots of two of the female leads. Everything is in character for the work as a whole. Criticizing the sexual elements really has nothing to do with the quality of the film.
