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
