MUJERES AL BORDE DE UN ATAQUE DE NERVIOS
1988, Sony Pictures Classics, 89 min, Spain, Dir: Pedro Almodóvar

Anarchy – sexual and political – runs riot in this Day-Glo-colored comedy about a voice-over actress (Almodóvar favorite Carmen Maura) desperate to get her lover back, amid Shiite terrorists, flaming beds and some of the wildest slapstick since BRINGING UP BABY. With Antonio Banderas. In Spanish with English subtitles.
