"Yes its me again a student from MCC in Arizona. This movie was very interesting it happened to be the first
Almodavar movie that i had seen and boy was it something. Very confusing and fast paced. I feel that it is a must see because i know many women that could easily go the way pepa did in this movie. I am so glad that i have had the chance to see this movie and i plan on viewing many other films of his."
