Description

Makeup artist Kika (Veronica Forque) falls for Ramón, a corpse who bounces back to life. But her affair with Ramón’s father (Peter Coyote) threatens their relationship. Looking to wreak havoc, Kika’s maid (Rossy de Palma) introduces her brother, a prison escapee and porn star, into the household. Voyeuristic dominatrix and television host Andrea Scarface (Victoria Abril) witnesses a crime committed against Kika, but she’s mostly interested in catching it on camera. The dizzying succession of events unfolds in a raucous comedy only Almodóvar could make.
