Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (Atame!) 1989
Pedro Almodóvar’s colorful and controversial tribute to the pleasures and perils of Stockholm syndrome, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is a rambunctious dark comedy starring Antonio Banderas as an unbalanced but alluring ex-mental-patient and Victoria Abril as the B-movie and former porn star he takes prisoner in the hopes of convincing her to marry him. A highly unconventional romance that came on the spike heels of Almodóvar’s international sensation Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, this is a splashy, sexy central work in the career of one of the world’s most beloved and provocative auteurs, radiantly shot by the director’s great cinematographer, José Luis Alcaine.
Ricky is released from a mental hospital and knows exactly what he wants to do. He hunts down Marina, a porn film star he once had sex with and tries to convince her to be his wife. She is a bit reluctant, so he ties her up. Will this approach endear him to her?
