I am a Pedro Almadovar fan. Frankly, anyone who follows in the footsteps of Douglas Sirk I have an affinity for. That said this was one of his weaker films. This film is basically a film noir with homosexuals. Sort of a precursor to one of Almadovar’s better films: Bad Education. It also borrows from Fassbinder. As it is, I have to say that this film is only worth a look.
