Romantic chaos among actors who make their living dubbing films. Answering machines, Shiite terrorists, dubbed and flubbed love lines, feminist lawyers, philanderers, seriously spiked gazpacho - these are some of the elements deftly (amazingly!) juggled by Spanish writer-director Pedro Almodovar in this wonderfully energetic comedy. With Carmen Maura, Fernando Guillen, Maria Barranco, and Antonio Banderas (90 min., 1988).
