The films in this box set by Pedro Almodovar, Spain’s most celebrated filmmaker since Luis Bunuel, include Matador (1985), a fable about sex, death and bull-fighting which Almodóvar proclaimed the ‘weirdest’ film of his career, and The Flower of My Secret (1995), which signalled a new maturity and emotional depth which would continue to distinguish films such as All About My Mother. Also included here are Law of Desire (1987) and Kika (1993), the former a classic tale of romantic obsession starring a young Antonio Banderas, the latter an outrageous media satire featuring Victoria Abril in costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier. Visually assured, the films from Law of Desire onwards established the director’s working relationship with brother Augustin, with whom he formed production company El Deseo. All four are quintessential Almodóvar, and validate his status as one of the most consistently exciting film-makers in the world.
