Like Pedro Almodovar? Like film theory? Than this is the book for you! This is the comprehensive breakdown of all of Almodovar's films...

The films of Pedro Almodovar (from "Pepi, Luci, Bom . ." to "All About My Mother") deconstructed and demystified for those who have often wondered (or missed) hidden nuances and meanings in his work (and the Spanish and American audience reactions to his films). For fans of Almodovar's work - from the ardent admirer to the curious novice.

I hope they've updated this book with chapters on the newer films. This is an interesting and thorough exploration of the many themes that run through the work of this great auteur. A wonderful companion to the films.
