Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

Year: 1990

Cast: Antonio Banderas

Like most people, I imagine, I saw this film because of the title and because I knew it had something to do with a porn actress.

Not a lot of film fans will know star Banderas and director Almodovar were ever together on a project, and it was this whimsical romance that, while sweet, I don't remember being as hot as I'd hoped.

When a young man (Banderas) is released from an asylum, he sets about his life's purpose - tracking down the porn actress he once slept with and still loves to convince her to marry him at any cost.

With no money and no chance of wooing her using traditional methods, he kidnaps her off the set of her latest production and keeps her tied up, figuring she'll agree sooner or later if he takes care of her and she sees how gentle and loving he is.
