The Ugliest Woman in the World


Time Out says

Similar in style to the fantastic satires of Alex de la Iglesia (Acción Mutante, The Day of the Beast), this vaguely futuristic, feminist schlock begins in Madrid, 2010, with the savage knife murder of an old woman by a mysterious nun - or perhaps that was just her party costume. Lt Arribas' investigation leads him to a scientist specialising in 'morphogenetics', Lola Otero, the 'most beautiful woman in the world,' and the haunting tale of a little girl dubbed 'the Malaysian foetus' by her classmates. Bardem's dissection of social hyprocrisy is only skin deep, but this cartoony fairytale is fun all the same.
