Pedro Almodóvar —

His new movie is out in the United States, he is now considered a Master of World Cinema , I agree. There is an excellant essay at Green Cine Daily a wonderful blog about Movies. This reviewer (dwhudson) points to lots more reading material about Almodóvar and his new movie Volver.

This is what Mr. Almodóvar says about the theme of the new movie:

“The screenplay is called “Volver”, and it is precisely about death — more than about death itself, the screenplay talks about the rich culture that surrounds death in the region of La Mancha, where I was born. It is about the way (not tragic at all) in which various female characters, of different generations, deal with this culture.”
