My Mother Likes Women

This 2002 farce by Spanish writing-directing team Ines Paris and Daniela Fejerman emulates Pedro Almodovar's gender-bending comedies, from screwball-cum-telenovela antics to the casting of leads Leonor Watling (Talk to Her) and Rosa Maria Sarda (All About My Mother). The curvaceous Watling stars as the most high-strung and narcissistic of the three grown daughters whom divorced, previously straight mom (Sarda) introduces to her new lady love, a much younger Czech emigre (Eliska Sirova). The sisters dive-bomb into sanctimonious jealousy before arranging to end their mother's affair by getting someone to seduce her lover. Handsome production values and frenetic pacing might have carried the wild plot, but the mean-spiritedness pretty much zaps the fizz. In Spanish and Czech with subtitles. 93 min.
