Description by OLDIES.com:

Pedro Almodovar's films - such as Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, All About My Mother, and Talk to Her, to name a few - are colorful and deeply felt celebrations of life and love. The influence of these works, which have been feted around the world, has been immense, and Almodovar on Almodovar tells the personal story of the man and his wonderfully vivid and outrageous vision.

Almodovar came of age during an austere time in rural Spain: 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 proceeded to carve for himself a unique niche in contemporary cinema with films bursting with vibrant energy and vivid, primary colors - each frame saturated with passions, releasing a pure, visual, visceral emotion. In these frank and passionate conversations, Almodovar discusses his astonishing life and career with a humor that is distinctly his own.
