Devastated by the death of her teenage son, a woman leaves Madrid for Barcelona in the hope that reunions with those once close to her will help her deal with her loss. Partly inspired by All About Eve, Opening Night, A Streetcar Named Desire and other favourites, Almodóvar’s beautifully crafted, semi-ironic melodrama provides an exhilarating roller-coaster ride through love, pain and the whole damn thing.

Also available on BFI Player.
