Critic Reviews for Tacones Lejanos (High Heels)
Unlike this director's best work, High Heels has no real mirth and not even enough energy to keep it lively.
It's bright and spunky and playfully melodramatic, but something's missing.
Pedro Almodovar's films are an acquired taste, and with High Heels I am at last beginning to acquire it.
Trying to combine drama and comedy in one movie often results in a bittersweet compromise. But in High Heels, Spanish director Pedro Almodovar mixes farce and passion in a way that heightens both extremes.
Audience Reviews for Tacones Lejanos (High Heels)
Almodovar always starts slow; but then as the story strands come together you can't stop watching.
One's enjoyment of this will depend on how the spectator is able to accept the director's melodramatic sensibilities (the live TV confession is a major standout) and to see Almodóvar winking at us through all the extreme plot twists. Douglas Sirk would have been proud.
Almodovar melodrama about a selfish singing mother retuning to Spain and her TV newscaster daughter after leaving for Mexico 15 years ago and never looking back. In those 15 years, the daughter has all grown up, keeping busy by marrying her mum's ex-lover and going to shows to watch Letal, drag artist, impersonate her mother. The plot is silly, but everyone throws themslves into it with great enthusiasm, and it looks so colourful and stylish and pretty and Spanish. Lovely.
