I have always been attracted to the kitsch, wicked and weird Pedro Almodovar's World. I saw the first movie in the beginning of the nineties and since then I am always expecting the next movie. I love the over-saturated colors, the strong women characters always performed by good actresses, the funny scripts (especially Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) and I discovered how a movie like Volver can make you feel emotional and homesick.

Some of his movies are:

1980 Pepi, Luci, Bom (Pepi, Luci, Bom y Otras Chicas del Montón)
1982 Labyrinth of Passion (Laberinto de Pasiones)
1983 Dark Habits (Entre Tinieblas)
1984 What Have I Done to Deserve This? (Que he hecho yo para merecer esto)
1986 Matador (Matador)
1987 Law of Desire (La Ley del Deseo)
1988 Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios)
1990 Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (¡Átame!)
1991 High Heels (Tacones Lejanos)
1993 Kika (Kika)
1995 The Flower of My Secret (La Flor de Mi Secreto)
1997 Live Flesh (Carne Trémula)
1999 All About My Mother (Todo Sobre Mi Madre)
2002 Talk to Her (Hable Con Ella)
2004 Bad Education (La Mala Educación)
2006 Volver
2009 Broken Embraces  (Los Abrazos Rotos)
2011 The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito)
2013 I'm So Excited  (Los amantes pasajeros)
