Pedro Almodovar's influence on European popular culture has been immense. From a small village in rural Spain to international acclaim for his many wonderfully vivid and outrageous films, Almodovar On Almodovar tells the story of the man and his films. Almodovar came from an austere background in rural Spain. It was the 1950s, the age of the Cold War, of mambo, of Balenciaga, of the Korean War, of the Hungarian Revolution, of the death of Stalin. But none of these events bore any impact on his village. In response, Almodovar's films - such as Bad Education, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Tie Me Up!, All About My Mother and Talk to Her to name a few - are colourful and deeply felt celebrations of life and love. In these frank and passionate conversations, Almodovar discusses his astonishing life and career with a humour that is distinctly his own. Pedro Almodovar is widely acclaimed as one of the most successful Spanish film-makers, having won two Academy Awards, six European Film Awards, 2 Golden Globe Awards and 5 BAFTA Awards. His most recent films include Volver (2006), Broken Embraces (2009), The Skin I Live In (2011) and I'm So Excited (2013).
Frederic Strauss is the editor of Almodovar on Almodovar and is the co-editor-in-chief of Cahiers du Cinema.
