Spanish and a Passion for Almodovar Cinema

Pedro Almodóvar left his village of Calzada de Calatrava in the Cuidad Real province when he was 17. He went to Madrid to follow his dream of becoming a film director. This filmmaker from La Mancha arrived in Madrid during the “Movida Madrileña” period, something that resonates in his first films he made in the 80’s. These were absolutely crazy, amateurish and transgressive, and made possible with the help of friends. From that time forward, he turned the city of Madrid into one of the protagonists of his films, and not solely as a place for the plot of his stories.

Such is the influence of Madrid in Almodovar’s filmography; one could say it is just like another “Almodovar Girl”. His development as a person and as an artist is directly related to the city whose evolution has been masterfully reflected by the director. In fact, in his filmography we find shops and places that no longer exist, but were very important in the city originally.
