"Tacones Lejanos" (High Heels) - featuring Maresa Paredes, Victoria Abril and Miguel Bosé - is one of the most beautiful films by Pedro Almodóvar.
It is the tale of a famous singer going back to her hometown, Madrid; of her attempt to rebuild a relationship with a daughter she had neglected as a child; of an irresistible drag queen with an unexpected day job.
With Madrid's flamboyant club scene on the background, the film is at once a family drama, a joyful detective story and a tribute to the mythical Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman.
In Almodóvar's filmography, "Tacones Lejanos" stands halfway between the hilarious and outrageous films of the early years and the more intimate and touching works of his maturity.
