  • (Directed and written by Pedro Almodovar; with Carmen Maura, Chus Lampreave, Juan Martinez). You're not likely to find this part of Spain in a guidebook for tourists. Gloria, a very attractive housewife, is a true feminist heroine who's on the go 18 hours a day, trying to keep her outrageously wacky family afloat. Comedy and tragedy blend to portray a surreal and perverse fable of contemporary life.
