This movie made after Almodovar's first more upbeat outrageous films, is a movie that says of the end of the Movida Madrilenia, a movement existing in the early eighties in Madrid that was defined by a mixture of fresh romantic punk and pop, and the ironic test of Spanish folklore and the 'housewife' culture. When folks in this subculture started to commonly test heroine, the downfall of the movement had begun. This movie is about the choices that folks had to create at the end of this era. some stayed junkies, others died, some went back to the tiny cities where they had moved from, others went on to give up on drugs and become more constructive. The convent where the nuns reside can be interpreted as the habitation of this irreverent movement, frequented by police searches, dealers, artists, and junkies. The film has some nice musical moments which indicate that Almodovar might one day take his hand to this genre. The religious element interwtined with (homo)sexuality will certainly be proliferated again in the forthcoming film La Mala Educacion. The film also includes a cameo of a Spanish 'Harrold Robbins' kind of writer, who is featured sitting at one of the tables wiping her mouth with a handkerchief as Yolanda sings in a night club at the beginning of the movie. This authopr refers to the hero of sister Rata de Callejon, who has a secret career as trashy novel writer. The movie is somewhat darker than most of Almodovar's early movies, but is very gentle, provides enough comedy and the characters above all remain very human, all of them have their virtues and vices.
This is early Almodovar, and if you've seen his another early films, you know what to expect. If you haven't seen them, then you might be surprised. The movie is funny, unpredictable, and endearing in a kinky, warped type of way. Almodovar's nuns are unbelievable characters. With straight faces and looks of piety, they do outrageous things without batting an eye. There are probably many methods to interpret the film, but I think it's about acceptance. We're all "sinners" in one method or another, as the nuns would say, and it's not up to us to judge or condemn another people. The sisters are very forgiving - in fact, they love sinners! - and they make a tiny haven where marginal folks can search shelter. They are eccentric, they do things that mainstream society condemns, but they don't really do any hurt to anyone and maybe even support some folks search their path in life. This isn't the Catholic Church's concept of what a convent could be like, and I understand that very devout folks would be offended by the method Almodóvar treats the subject. Still, he does it in a type of gentle, nice humored method and he offers an alternative vision of religious devotion that can create you laugh if you aren't too uptight about these things. Things don't everytime create sense, but that's fine, things don't create sense in life sometimes, either. Just sit back and watch, and play the twists and turns.
Finally saw this movie today. I laughed out loud many times. It's just so wonderfully outrageous. The nuns are played by actresses that went on to enjoy leads in Almodovar's soon films: Girls on the Verge, All About My Mother, etc. The actress who plays Sister Rat figures prominently, which made me very happy, as she has had mostly very minor roles in his subsequent films. She first came to my attention in Talk To Her. She plays the concierge, and asks the reporter why her tenant is in jail. The reporter tells he's innocent. She replies, I know, but innocent of what? She has right-on deadpan delivery that just knocks you out, and it's on full display in Dark Habits.The movie is less neatly constructed than Almodovar's soon works, and one might tell the ending is somewhat messy. Still, it's interesting to compare it to his incredibly polished work of the last ten years. While the uninitiated (to Almodovar) may search parts of it a tiny shocking, it's not nearly as raw as it would be if it were made today--certainly the lesbianism is tame by today's standard.Other reviewers are right that a lot of the English subtitles miss the ironic tone in the script. But don't allow that stop you . . . It's Almodovar! Even second tier Almodovar with inadequate subtitling is better than 99 percent of everything else!
