Pablo loves Juan but Juan is lukewarm about the relationship. Antonio becomes obsessed with Pablo after one evening intended to be a mere one-night stand. Paralleling this dangerous love triangle is the story of Pablo’s sister Tina, a transgender woman about whom Pablo is writing a play.
One of Almodóvar’s personal favourites, this early great shares a kinship with his 2019 film Pain & Glory, not only in Antonio Banderas’ unforgettable turn but also its explorations of lust and fiction. A baroque melodrama celebrating new family models, Law of Desire feels more pertinent than ever.
