Actors and actresses from Pedro Almodóvar’s vault of previous films, muses mixed up with newbies and even a few cameos are the team that make up a comedy that is a throwback to the Pedro of before (think pre 1990’s Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!). Teaser trailer (see below) announces this as high end comedy. Lovers of subtitles should brace themselves for impact – there’ll be a lot of spewing.
Gist: This is an ensemble comedy about a group of people on the brink of an impending disaster.
Release Date: This is receiving a March 8th release in Spain and will find its way on the Croisette. Expect Sony Pictures Classics to not waste much time and have it hit theaters during the summer.
