At the tender age of 17, Pedro Almodóvar left his home town of Calzada de Calatrava for Madrid. His evolution as a person and an artist is linked to this city; in fact, he treats it as yet another character in his movies and has masterfully portrayed its transformation in recent decades in his films. We have designed the Spanish and a Passion for Almodovar program that allows you to learn Spanish while getting to know Madrid through the movies of this brilliant film director. A true “Almodovaran” experience!
