Cast: Antonio Banderas, Victoria Abril, Rossy de Palma Banderas stars in this flagrantly outrageous BDSM romance, one of Almodóvar’s most controversial creations. Freshly released from a mental hospital, a psychopath (Banderas) kidnaps a former porn star (Abril) with the intention of making her fall in love with him… and it kind of works. Only Almodóvar would dare make Stockholm Syndrome this sexy and funny. Initially branded with the pornography-associated X rating by the MPAA.
