  • High Heels

    High Heels

    With its bright, rigorous visuals and lip-synced musical numbers, High Heels finds Almodóvar at his most fabulously freewheeling. A labyrinthine comedy about a mother, a daughter, and a corpse, it’s the most explicit nod to the women’s pictures of Douglas Sirk in the Spanish auteur’s career to date.
