Pretty much every Aldomavar film has a character that has had a sex change operation. Not many directors can you say that about. All About My Mother
has been labeled as more of a women’s film in the same breath as Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and it does have some rich dramatic moments. I still think Talk to Her is my favorite of the Aldomavar films, though I am having trouble getting The Skin I’m In out of my mind.
