Almodovar: Volume 1 Box Set
Dark Habits (1983): Nothing is quite what it seems in this early Almodovar comedy in which the unconventional nuns of a dilapidated Madrid convent write soft porn, get high and still find time to design fabulous evening wear!
Pepi, Luci, Bom (1980): Pepi (Carmen Maura) is an unemployed heiress whose illegal plants, indiscreetly placed on the balcony, lead to an unwelcome visit from a policeman. The policeman presses his advances in exchange for not arresting Pepi. Later, however, Pepi exacts revenge by employing a punk rock band to pose as opera singers who stalk the policeman and beat him up. Unfortunately, the punk rock band/opera singers beat up the policeman's twin brother, and so Pepi befriends the policeman's long-suffering wife, Luci (Eva Silva) instead. Pepi is a liberating force for Luci, and soon Luci decides to run off and be a groupie for the punk rockers...
What Have I Done To Deserve This? (1984): An erotic and bizarre black comedy which follows a typical Spanish housewife with rather atypical family problems!
Nazis, homosexuality, drug dealing, extra-marital affairs and a plot to forge Hitler's diaries: everything you'd expect from Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar's fourth film!
Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown (1988): High atop one of Spain's poshest penthouses, three women have come to the end of their mental ropes. Super-sexy Pepa (Carmen Maura), is forever teetering around atop her skyscraper spikes as she obsesses over Ivan (Fernando Guillen), the lover who just jilted her over the answering machine! Her neurotic best friend Candela (Maria Barranco), is seeking refuge at Pepa's place because she recently realized her lover is a Shiite terrorist. And Ivan's ex-wife Lucia (Julieta Serrano), was just released from a 20-year stint in a mental institution. They're all mighty mad - in fact, they're on the verge of a nervous breakdown... and one of them is about to commit murder unless the other half-crazed femmes fatales can stop her!
