Ricky, der die Welt bisher nur von gelegentlichen Ausbrüchen aus Waisenhäusern und psychatrischen Kliniken kennt, wird mit 23 Jahren in die Gesellschaft entlassen. Sein Lebensziel: ein Job, eine Familie und vor allem eine Frau. Letztere hat er sich bereits ausgesucht: Marina, eine Softporno-Darstellerin, mit der Ricky einmal für Geld geschlafen hat und die ihm seitdem nicht mehr aus dem Kopf gegangen ist. Da Marina auf seine Annäherungsversuche nicht eingeht, dringt er in ihre Wohnung ein, fesselt sie ans Bett und wartet darauf, daß sie sich in ihn verliebt. Petro Almodovar stattete auch diese kolportagehafte Story - wie seine früheren Filme - genüßlich mit Kitsch und Geschmacklosigkeiten aus: Eine gnadenlose schrille Farbgestaltung, ein Panoptikum schräger Gestalten und optische Gags am Rande steigern die originelle, bizarre Liebesgeschichte ins Groteske. Daß eine Frau sich tatsächlich in ihren Entführer verliebt und ihn später sogar bittet: "Fessle mich!" brachte einige Zuschauerinnen dahin, wohin Almodovar die Frauen in seinem zwei Jahre zuvor gedrehten Welterfolg getrieben hatte: an den Rand eines Nervenzusammenbruchs. (Lex. d. I. Films) "Atame!" handelt von einem jungen Mann, dem das Leben nichts geschenkt hat, nicht einmal ein wenig gesunden Menschenverstand. Der Film erzählt seine harte Lehrzeit, um sich in einen normalen Menschen zu verwandeln.
