  • Description

    The most celebrated Spanish filmmaker since Luis Buñuel, director, screenwriter, composer and actor Pedro Almodóvar was born in Calzada de Calatrava, La Mancha, in 1951. Aged sixteen, Almodóvar moved to Madrid and purchased his first movie camera and became familiar with what would later drive his formative films: the dramas and miseries of the Spanish middle classes at the beginning of the age of consumerism.

    The films in this box set include, Dark Habits (1983), What Have I Done to Deserve This? (1984) Law of Desire (1987) and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988). As well as sealing the collaborations that Almodóvar had made with the actors he met from his days in an independent theatre group (including Carmen Maura), the films from this period also display his acute visual style and recurring thematic obsessions including sexual violence, female masochism and addiction. It was this epoch that also bought the first of numerous Academy Award® nominations for Women on the Verge.

    Kika (1993) and The Flower of My Secret (1995) continue the director’s fascination with strong female protagonists, transgression, pain and regeneration. This stunning collection is a must-have for all fans of Almodóvar - each film has been beautifully restored - showcasing the work of one of the world’s most celebrated filmmaker.
