What I have done to deserve this

Spain, 1985, 101MIN, Feature
Starring: Carmen Maura, Chus Lampreave, Vernica Forque
Directed by: Pedro Almodovar
Language: Spanish with Arabic Subtitle

Gloria (Carmen Maura) is a put-upon maid who, in order to stay alert while toiling away at multiple jobs, pop No-Doze pills like candy. Still, these uppers hardly alleviate the frustration and anger of contending with her loutish tax-driver husband (who once published a forged collection of Hitler’s letters, and is in love with German opera singer), her crotchety mother-in-law (who owns a pet lizard named Dinero and constantly bitches about moving back to her home village), her drug-dealing older son, and her young boy, who’s having sexual affairs with old men.
