almodovar amor

There's something curiously addicting about an Almodovar film -- the character evolutions, the tears, the family dynamics... the drama! I stumbled across a blog post on cinema for Tauruses the other day, and had to chuckle at how accurate it was. (Can't get enough of astrology sometimes!) As a Taurian myself, I love color and texture, aesthetically as well as within the personalities of characters on and off-screen.

Even more true to print, I adore Pedro Almodovar's films, especially Volver and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. A strong, complex female lead is such a pleasure to sink into, especially when the character seems so 3-dimensional and real! But is my Almodovar-admiration all chalked up to astrology... or is there just a whole lot to love about these movies? Do you find Almodovar films to be as addictively good as I do?


  1. Ah, well, I don't know what they say for Libras, but Almodovar is too intense for me! I like light and frothy!
