Almodóvar’s seventh feature, the wildly overblown and extremely raunchy Law of Desire was instrumental in bringing the director to a wider audience outside of his native Spain. Never one to ostracise audiences, Almodóvar offers something to offend and delight everyone in equal measure. Popular film director Pablo Quintero (Eusebio Poncela) is frustrated by his relationship with straight ‘lover’ Juan (Miguel Molina) and soon Pablo’s blue-collar lover is banished to the country. Itching to fill the gap in Pablo’s life is the handsome and horny Antonio (Antonio Banderas), an obsessive fan of Pablo’s homo-erotic movies. Also pricking Pablo’s personal and professional attention is Tina (a superb Carmen Maura), his sex-changed brother who is now a lesbian. Witty, sexy and utterly audacious, Law of Desire is Almodóvar at his most outrageous, provocative and insightful.
