The popular choice for the big prize at Cannes 1999, but did get the Best Director Award at least. Almodovar's best yet will thrill his followers as well as winning new fans. With an outstanding female cast this celebration of mothers, all things female and high melodrama is his best since Tie Me Up Tie Me Down. Almodovar's exhilarating use of his art is a joy to behold.
