Pedro Almod#65533;var (Spain, b. 1951) single-handedly represents the revival of Spanish cinema as part of the cultural flowering of the Movida Madrile#65533;a in the 1980s. New York was first to hail the unbridled imagination of this provocative director, whose films are filled with transsexuals, neurotics ( Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown , 1988) and even drug-addicted nuns ( The Law of Desire , 1987). In his maturity Almod#65533;var has continued to draw inspiration from his underprivileged childhood in a remote corner of La Mancha, making melodramas bursting with heightened passions expressed by unforgettable actors such as Penelope Cruz ( All About My Mother , 1999; Broken Embraces , 2009) and Gael Garc#65533;a Bernal ( Bad Education , 2004).

Not a glorified advertisement, nor a biography, this volume in the series hits the nail on the head with respect to the purpose of the series.
