Pedro Almodóvar is one of the most notorious and celebrated directors of international film who single-handedly ushered in a new wave of Spanish film. Mixing up a cocktail of strong characters, weird sex, odd violence, perverse humour, bizarre plot twists, with elements of classic melodrama and crime thrillers, Almodóvar created an unmistakable style of his own. Vividly colourful, darkly humorous and always entertaining, Almodóvar’s films have to be seen to be believed. Along with Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Matador and Tie MeUp! Tie Me Down!, High Heels is a perfect introduction to Almodóvar’s early work.
A famous torch song singer returns to Spain from Mexico with the hope of being reunited with the daughter she previously abandoned. On her arrival she discovers her daughter is planning to marry one of her ex-lovers, a situation that can only end with murder.
