What Have I Done to Deserve This | Spain | 1984 | 16mm | 101 min. | Spanish with English subtitles Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Sunday, November 5, 2017
Cast: Carmen Maura, Luis Hostalot, Ryu Hiroma The great Maura stars as a pill-popping cleaning lady whose home life has spun hilariously out of control in characteristically Almodóvarian fashion. She’s crammed into a Madrid apartment with her dimly chauvinist husband and two dubiously entrepreneurial sons (one’s selling drugs, the other’s selling his body) under the scolding eye of her mother-in-law, with a prostitute and a telekinetic for neighbors.
