Live Flesh

During a fight with his junkie girlfriend, police intervene and an officer is shot. Six years later the wrongly convicted Victor is shocked to learn his old flame has married the now-paraplegic ex-cop. Out to avenge his imprisonment, the plot spins out of control in this classic, typically offbeat Almodovar number that interweaves these tales of guilt and destiny. Look for an early appearance by Penelope Cruz.
