Rolling Stone
A rapturous masterwork.

The New York Times
Bad Education is a voluptuous experience that invites you to gorge on its beauty and vitality, although it has perhaps the darkest ending of any of the films by the Spanish writer and director.

Very good, very dark and very gay. Note the NC17 rating. However, I couln't stop watching the film once I started. An excellent film filled with color and colorful characters.

Bad Education
I'm not a big Almodovar fan, but this one is good. childhood friends are meeting again as grown ups, dealing with the memory of the sexual abuse they went through while attending a catholic school. an unquestionably well directed film.

Some might say it's not one of Almodóvar’s best, but I really liked it. First of all, watching Gael García Bernal is always a pleasure... And second, it's fascinating and colorful, even though I needed some time to get used to it. Bad Education...
