"A devilish, delicious comedy."
"Subversive playful and brilliant. A twisty, joyously perverse film."
"Delectably entertaining. A skillfully triangulated psychological thriller... with an ai rof Hitchcockian menace."
"By turns suspenseful, aching, and exuberant, it offers a buoyant tale of self-discovery."
"Hitchcock's diabolical sense of humor is evident...with Pedro Almodóvar's brazen rebelliousness...A delicious and frothy fantasia with a teasing erotic frisson."
