Study by Jose Quiroga of Pedro Almodovar's 1987 film 'Law of Desire,' a romantic melodrama that explores themes of homoeroticism, amnesia and sexual identity. The author examines the film against the social and political background of Spanish cinema, compares it to other examples of 'queer cinema' and looks at the film within the context of Almodovar's later work. The book is illustrated with numerous stills from the film for which a plot synopsis and cast/crew credits are provided.
