Six short stories involving people out for vengeance. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

I loved this film. I thought it was very well done and the pace never lagged. So good. I saw Pedro Almodovar ( cannot spell) on the credits, I think as one of the producers. Figures. Anything he does or is involved in is fantastic.

This was great! Not expected. Watch the comments after you watch the film. Fulfills all anyone's fantasies of revenge with unexpected endings. Yes, could watch this again because I know I missed some of the dialogue. A great film to watch during the current Oregon heat wave.

The wildest revenge fantasies carried out! What if people could get what's coming to them? Sometimes the plan goes horribly wrong. Nevertheless, Karma's a b*tch. I would watch this movie again.

Great movie to watch. It start well, and the overall development is catching to the viewer. I enjoyed this movie a lot.

The violence of letting rage get out of control? This was like watching a roadrunner/wiley coyote cartoon with real people. What's the point? Way too negative.

A definitely great movie - a lot of bitter laugh. Gloomy, surprising, and funny scenes mix together in a wonderful performance. It makes you think how life could be both foreseeable and unpredictable.

A little Luis Bunuel, a little Twilight Zone. Not as profound or as professional as it might want to be (some of the stories are predictable, or just end, without having a memorable ending), but still a lot of fun.

Add a Summary

Six adult standalone short films united by a common theme of violence, vengeance, and extremes of human behavior. The subtitle on the box explains a lot: "Patience has its limits; we can all lose control." Things change. Stuff happens. And what happens when people cross the line from acceptable to unacceptable behavior? Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar is the executive producer. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 96% 'fresh' rating, with an average score of 7.9/10, and with the critic consensus being: "Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged... a subversive satire that doubles as a uniformly entertaining anthology film."
