Arrebato is an unknown film also in Spain because it's very difficult to access to one copy of this inimitable film. In fact I think that Arrebato had been seen by a minoritary group of all the people who loves deeply the good cinema. It is a cult movie made with the same cast and professionals than Almodovar first films, but it isn't an Almodovar's film. It is one of this films that change your impressions about the cinema and without any doubt, we can say that is the history which better reflects the vampiric relationship which we can see between the movies and those people who believes that the cinema is more important than live.
