In this witty and heartfelt satire on the absurdity of war, the exasperated women of a remote Middle Eastern village go to entertainingly extreme lengths to prevent religious violence reigniting in the community. Having lost loved ones in a previous conflict, the feisty femmes are determined that their half-Christian, half-Muslim community should live peacefully together even though the rest of the region is experiencing escalating sectarian trouble. But stopping their hot-headed menfolk from joining in with this strife requires acts of laugh-out-loud ingenuity: from faking miracles to bringing in a busload of Ukrainian exotic dancers to distract them. A scattering of musical numbers adds to the playful tone, resulting in a film that delivers serious messages without being too heavy.
Beautifully shot and deeply moving Spanish melodrama from the masterful director Pedro Almodóvar.
