Theatrical Release Date:  TBC
Home Ent. Release Date:  03 Dec 2006


Almodovar wrote and directed What have I done to deserve this? in 1984. The film stars Carmen Maura as Gloria, an over-worked mother and wife addicted to amphetamines in order to have the energy to cook and clean for her ungrateful family, as well as cleaning other people’s houses for extra cash. Gloria’s husband Antonio is a chauvinist taxi driver who gets entangled in a plot to forge Hitler’s memoirs. Her mother in law is a tight-fisted but loveable old lady who longs to move back to the village, whilst one of her sons deals heroin and the other son is adopted out to a lecherous dentist.
