Reviews

Four of director Pedro Almodovar's acclaimed films. In 'The Flower of My Secret' (1995), a woman who lives a double life finds that being a successful romantic novelist does not necessarily bring happiness. Her husband does not love her, her best friend seems distracted and her mother and sister are too busy bickering to notice that anything is wrong. She stops writing and finds solace in the bottle but finds an unlikely rescuer putting her on a collision course to a new emotional entanglement. 'Kika' (1993) is a black comedy about a make-up artist and her relationship with a philandering American writer living in Madrid. Features the usual roster of Almodovar comic stalwarts such as a rapist-thief, a narcoleptic son, a roving camerawoman voyeur, a lesbian housemaid and various transexuals, serial killers, porn stars and drug addicts - all whisked up into a gloriously immoral frothy sex comedy. In 'Law of Desire' (1987), Antonio Banderas stars as the obsessive fan of gay director Pablo Quintero (Eusebio Poncela). Carmen Maura also stars as the director's lesbian sex-changed brother in this sex, drugs and murder romp through modern Madrid. Finally, in 'Matador' (1986), Diego (Nacho Martinez) is an ex-champion bullfighter who has retired early and now runs a bullfighting school; still looking to find a 'kick', he has taken to watching sadistic videos for sexual pleasure. Maria Cardenal (Assumpta Serna) is a lawyer and Diego's number one fan; she also likes to kill men with a hairpin at the point of orgasm. The pair are destined to meet.

A collection of four of Pedro Almodóvar's films from the 1980's and 1990's.

Matador (1986). Bullfighting with a difference, in which we see pious behaviour and murder. Extras: Trailer. With an introduction by José Arroyo.

The Law Of Desire (1987). Frustrated relationships, from a film maker (Pablo Quintero) and his lovers. With an introduction by José Arroyo.

Kika (1993). Outrageous costumes and behavior, a dizzy make-up artist , an escaped prisoner, murder ... Extras: Cast and Crew interviews; Pedro Almodóvar interview; Trailer; Introducing the characters; The Music. With an introduction by José Arroyo.

The Flower Of My Secret (1995). A story of self criticism and love. Extras: Cast and Crew interviews; Pedro Almodóvar interview; Trailer. With an introduction by José Arroyo.

This is a great collection if you are a fan of Pedro Almodóvar. Four different films but all with great direction and story from Almodóvar and great acting from the likes of Euserbio Poncela, Antonio Banderas, Carmen Maura, Veronica Forque, Peter Coyote, Victoria Abril, Rossy de Palma, Marisa Paredes and Chus Lampreave amongst others.

Even at twice the price this collection is worth having if you are a fan of Almodovar. The twisted dark comedy cant fail to suprise and uplift you. his female characters as ever dominate but its good to see how Antonia Banderas started out in Spanish film.

My son asked me to buy him some Almodovar films for his A' Level Spanish course, so I bought him this box set and Volume 1 as well. He has enjoyed watching the films. So have I.

Some of his more obscure, less commercial films that are great to watch. A must for all Almodovar fans. I prefer this to vol 1.

The films made by this director are very interesting, if somewhat strange at times I like Penelope Crux very much
