"Presentando una de las más desenfadadas comedias de guerra entre sexos, Pedro Almodovar, el más célebre director/guionista español crea un loco, criminal y divertido universo sin faldas. Nominada por la Academia en 1988 a la Mejor Película Extranjera, Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios es una salvaje, sensual y muy ingeniosa farsa. En lo alto de uno de los más elegantes pernthouses españoles, tres mujeres han alcanzado sus límites mentales. La súper sexy Pepa (Carmen Maura) mantiene un constante balanceo en la punta del rascacielos obsesionada por Iván (Fernando Guillén), el amor que la acaba de plantar por la máquina contestadora. Su neurótica mejor amiga, Candela (María Barranco) busca refugio en casa de Pepa porque acaba de descubrir que su amante es un terrorista chiíta. Y Lucia (Julieta Serrano) la ex-esposa de Iván, acaba de recuperar la libertad tras 20 años de encierro en una institución mental. Todas están un poco locas, de hecho, están al borde de un ataque de nervios... y una de ellas está a punto de cometer un crímen a menos que las otras medio locas mujeres fatales lo impidan. Cargada de pintorescos personajes secundarios, incluyendo al dos veces nominado al Globo de Oro Antonio Banderas. Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios es candente, muy condimentada y llena de personajes excéntricos, ¡todos al borde del caos!.--Envase
