Product Notes

Creating "one of the jauntiest of all war-of-the-sexes comedies" (Pauline Kael), Pedro Almodvar, Spain's premiere writer-director, creates an off-kilter universe of madness, mayhem and pure fun. Nominated for the 1988 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and co-starring Antonio Banderas, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdownis "a wild, wanton, wickedly witty farce! (People)" High atop one of Spain's posh penthouses, three women have come to the end of their mental ropes. Super-sexy Pepa (Carmen Maura) is forever teetering around atop her skyscraper spikes as she obsesses over Ivn (Fernando Guilln), the lover who just jilted her over the answering machine! Her neurotic best friend Candela (Mara Barranco) is seeking refuge at Pepa's place because she recently realized her lover is a Shiite terrorist. And Ivn's ex-wife Luca (Julieta Serrano) was just released from a 20-year stint in a mental institution. They're all mighty mad - in fact, they're on the verge of a nervous breakdown and one of them is about to commit murder unless the other half-crazed femmes fatales can stop her!
