Pedro Almodóvar returns with the follow-up to his Oscar-winning hit All About My Mother. With a hospital waiting room as its nexus, an intricate drama—part soap opera, part morality tale—unfolds. Javier Cámara is a lonely male nurse infatuated with a beautiful, comatose ballerina (Leonor Watling). He befriends a writer (Darío Grandinetti) who unrequitedly loves an injured female bullfighter (Rosario Flores), also in a coma. Weaving lucid melodrama and dark wit, fetishes and philosophies, Almodóvar presents a careful exploration of human emotions and actions, romance and remorse. Academy Award Winner for Best Original Screenplay. (Fully subtitled) Official Web Site
