Pedro Almodóvar’s flashily camp, over-the-top sex comedy follows the antics of a group of airline passengers who decide to cast decorum to the wind when they realise their jet is in trouble. After discovering a fault in the aircraft’s landing gear shortly after take-off, a Peninsula Airways jet bound for Mexico City is held in a holding pattern above Madrid. As the authorities on the ground try to solve the problem, the remaining business class passengers - those in economy class having been drugged unconscious by the crew - try to calm their nerves by embarking on a frenzied and debauched course of pill-popping, mescaline cocktails and gratuitous sex, aided by three ostentatiously gay flight attendants (Javier Cámara, Carlos Areces and Raul Arevalo).

After a string of intense and edgy melodramas, including Talk To Her and Volver, Pedro Almodovar returns to the outrageous comedies of his early career with I'm So Excited, a caper set almost entirely on an aeroplane experiencing difficulties in-flight. The plot, such as it is, takes in dodgy financial dealings, a dominatrix, a psychic virgin, gratuitous sex and a bizarre dance routine to the title song (one of the film's highlights).

If this all sounds silly, it is, very. But no one does a comic set piece like Almodovar, and the expert comic timing of the cast - notably the waspish air stewards who act as a catty chorus to the shenanigans - make for an outrageous treat. And despite his protests to the contrary, the Spanish director's depiction of a faulty aircraft where the standard class passengers are drugged into a coma while the first class travellers run amok may remind some of a certain country currently experiencing an economic crisis of its own. Flamboyant, vulgar and shameless, fans of camp should look no further.
