High Heels

High Heels

Directed by Pedro Almodóvar • 1991 • Spain
Starring Marisa Paredes, Victoria Abril, Miguel Bosé

Pedro Almodóvar’s outré homage to the classic mother-daughter melodrama traces the fraught relationship between a flamboyant actress (Marisa Paredes) and her estranged daughter (Victoria Abril) who become embroiled in a murder case when a man with whom they were each romantically involved is killed. Delighting in the lurid mechanics of the twist-filled plot, Almodóvar crafts a stylish, witty, gender-bending soap opera in the tradition of Sirk and Fassbinder.
