Almodóvar once again revealed his genius for turning the ridiculous into the sublime in this wonderfully strange, oddly sexy and attractively perverse mystery. Plastic surgeon Dr Robert Ledgard lives in a palatial Madrid villa with his loyal housekeeper Marilia and a beautiful young patient, Vera, who is kept locked in a room at the top of the house. Robert’s past is full of trauma and dark secrets, which will gradually be revealed. A surging Hitchcockian orchestral score, a breathless sense of imminent violence and a commanding performance from Antonio Banderas combine to make this thrilling viewing.
