More Description

Pedro Almodovar ... winner of a BAFTA for Best Director, 2000
"All About My Mother" ... Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film, 2000
The huge international success of his latest feature, "All About My Mother," has finally granted Pedro Almodovar the recognition he deserves, as the most artistically ambitious and commercially consistent film-maker in Europe.
Frequently comic, often deadly serious, always visually glorious, his films range from the screwball comedy "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" and the SM melodrama "Tie Me Up Tie Me Down " to the almost classically austere "Live Flesh." And, while questions of gender, nationality and sexuality have always been Almodovar's concern, new subjects have been addressed in his more recent work: the corrosive effects of a deregulated Spanish media, the transition from dictatorship to democracy and, in "All About My Mother," uncompromising explorations of the process of mourning.
This new edition includes four new chapters, among which is a rare interview with Almodovar himself, a new preface and additional illustrations. Still the only study of its kind in English, it vigorously confirms its original argument, that beneath Almodovar's genius for comedy and visual pleasure lies a film-maker whose work deserves to be taken with the utmost seriousness.
