Nevertheless, Almodovar's narratives are still set in Madrid--even at specific street addresses in some cases--and his camera continues to linger on familiar landmarks and neighbourhoods: an emotional conversation between Leo and Angel takes place against the recognizable backdrop of the Plaza Mayor in La flor de mi secreto-, Ramon picks up his father at the Atocha train station in Kika; Ricky goes to the Chueca neighbourhood to buy drugs for Marina in Atame (Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down) (1990).
Almodovar fans may take note of Atame. In the capable hands of Ghislaine Chapon, this place is more than just a tapas bar and bodega.

Smith ignores facile explanations for the increasing scarcity of explicit homosexual relationships in Almodovar's film universe (i.e., that by using straight couples in Atame or Tacones lejanos the director broadens the films' commercial appeal, and that in any case, homosexual viewers have no more trouble identifying themselves with Victoria Abril than with Antonio Banderas) and postulates reasons that are more complex, more entertaining, and doubtlessly more in touch with Almodovar's own sensibility.
Atame! in terms of masochism (as revised by Gilles Deleuze and by critics like Gaylyn Studlar and Carol Clover), Smith sees the much-attacked-as-sexist film taking place "under the sign of the archaic mother," a sign also potently evident in the mythic ironies of Matador and Tacones lejanos, though more plainly in the sadist--or "Sadian"--mode of aggression which according to Smith is not in play in the masochist's scenarios between Marina (Victoria Abril) and Ricki (Antonio Banderas).
