Pedro Almodovar's influence on European popular culture has been immense. From an austere background in rural Spain to international acclaim for his many wonderfully vivid and outrageous films, "Almodovar on Almodovar" tells the story of the man and his films. 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 colourful and deeply felt celebrations of life and love. In these frank and passionate conversations, Almodovar discusses his astonishing life and career with a humour that is distinctly his own.
