Kika, a cute cosmetologist, prepares Ramon for funeral when he revives. He proposes to the much older Kika who has his dad as lover. Did Ramon's dad murder his mom? What about the escaped rapist and the PSYCHOlogist video reporter?

The literal translation of the Spanish title into English is "Distant Heels", the sound of which both Becky and Rebecca refer to when reminiscing about their respective childhoods. The English title 'High Heels' may have led to its mixed reception by critics and audiences in the US and UK who were expecting a comedy about fashion. See more »
I have seen almost all Almodovar films, as he is a unique and eccentric director with vision. Eccentricity is not the case with this one. Humour is almost absent. Maybe you have by now figured out I prefer other, more humorous and provokative Almodovar films. Not that it's no good. It is, with tight acting and nice storyline. It didn't touch me though, as it was supposed to, and as a friend suggested. See also other Almodovar reviews by me to see what I mean.
For something completely different from this, see the next film of Almodovar, 1993, KIKA, as well as LABYRINTH OF PASSION, MATADOR. Blasphemous, humorous, explosive! Whatever the case, I should recommend this to people who saw other more exessive Almodovar films and didn't like it. This is much more serious, with firm storyline and great acting by everyone, as well as TALK TO HER.
