NotesA young man released from mental hospital kidnaps a porn actress who was the woman of his dreams. He keeps her tied up and beats her but buys drugs to feed her addiction. Oddly she falls in love with him. A quirky film which Almodovar doesn't quite carry off. It's not as funny as it's meant to be and humour is the only factor which could have made the brutish treatment less repulsive. One for those who like dark humour. Though Victoria Abril is superb as usual. .
