Almodóvar’s early foray into the chaos and anarchy of the many permutations of desire revolves around Sexilia, a young and nymphomaniac rock star, who meets and falls in love with the gay Riza Niro. He is the heir to a fallen Arab empire and she the daughter of a brilliant and twisted gynaecologist.  Unable to have sex, the couple trace their problems back to childhood trauma.
