Spanish comedy drama written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar. Antonio Banderas stars as Antonio Benítez, the obsessive fan of gay film-maker Pablo Quintero (Eusebio Poncela), who becomes infatuated with him following the release of his latest movie. After learning Pablo is in love with Juan (Miguel Molina), Antonio tracks Juan down and kills him in a jealous rage. When Pablo learns of Juan's sudden death he is distraught and crashes his car following a run-in with the police who want to question him over the crime. Waking up in hospital with amnesia, Pablo is nursed back to health by his transsexual sister Tina (Carmen Maura). However, when he discovers Antonio is posing as Tina's new lover in an attempt to get close to him, Pablo faces a race against time to get to him before Tina gets hurt.

If you like Almodovar's work, you won't be disappointed by this.
From The Law of Desire onwards the attack and celebration continues, but the point is sharper, more disciplined and more mature. The effect is devastatingly brilliant in the first 3 films made by El Deseo which amount to a ‘Trilogy of Desire’ (my title). Fundamentally postmodern by inclination, Almodóvar treats the subject through a pastiche of different genres which is different in each film. The one constant genre is melodrama, but in Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990) this is refracted through romantic comedy, horror and the hostage thriller. In Women on a Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) melodrama is merged with comedy, farce and elements of Hitchcock. In The Law of Desire we have melodrama filtered through a delirious mixture of love comedy, porno, psycho thriller and detective murder mystery.Read more ›
