What Have I Done to Deserve This?

A Madrid housewife (Carmen Maura) is struggling to make ends meet and holding her family together. An attempt by Pedro Almodóvar to honor the legacy of Italian Neorealism, depicting a working-class family where dad is a cab driver barely able to support his kids… but realism is not really the director’s thing. Packed with wildly provocative ideas and elements, including a 14-year-old drug dealer and a 12-year-old boy who’s sleeping around with men; a scene with a pedophile dentist is comically absurd. Expect tragedy, laced with black humor; Maura is very good in the lead.

1984-Spain. 100 min. Color. Written and directed by¬†Pedro Almod√≥var. Cast: Carmen Maura (Gloria), √Āngel de Andr√©s L√≥pez (Antonio), Chus Lampreave (Grandmother), Juan Mart√≠nez, Miguel √Āngel Herranz, Ver√≥nica Forque.

Trivia: Original title: ¬ŅQu√© he hecho yo para merecer esto!.
