Description

An unbridled send-up of the absurdities of human desire, a wildly funny film that took American and European audiences by storm and immediately established director Pedro Almodovar. ‘Law Of Desire’ features a fabulous trio – Pablo, a famous Madrid director for whom men are prepared to die, his new love-crazed boyfriend Antonio, and Pablo’s gorgeous and flamboyant transsexual sister Tina. Pablo is suffering because Juan, his lover, shares his steamy passion but not his commitment, and has returns to his village in southern Spain. Trying to forget him, Pablo is seduced by the tall, dark, handsome and heterosexual Antonio who, in the space of 24 hours, goes from having his first gay affir, to being Pablo’s demanding – and threatening – lover. Pablo makes the mistake of dismissing Antonio as inconsequential but Antonio intends to pursue his passions to their ultimate conclusion.

Customer review

Law of Desire builds gently, with great charm, humour and care in introducing us to a cast of very engaging and sympathetically flawed characters... and then a murder propels us into a mesmerising and unforgettable 2nd half which is as utterly believable as it is unpredictable. This is one of the greatest gay movies ever made, but I urge straight people to watch it in earnest if they want to see a brilliant film about real people, not stereotypes of either the positive or negative variety, and a story told with authenticity and freshness. The performances are uniformly excellent and Almodovar's direction has a lightness of touch and the simplicity and lack of pretension for which he is rightly renowned. I couldn't praise or recommend it highly enough. Just see it. Gary McGhee, UK
