Directed by Pedro Almodovar
Winner of the Cesar
Award for Best Foreign Film this film is part revenge comedy, part thriller and part
sexual farce. Pedro Almodovar's High Heels is a Sirkian melodrama about the
bizarre relationship between an aging Spanish movie star and singer (Marisa Paredes) and
her daughter, a prominent local television anchor woman (Victoria Abril). Almodovar throws
in an acrobatic sex scene, a prison dance number, an on-camera confession, a buried family
secret and a final reconciliation. Spanish with English subtitles.
