Truly original, the Oscar-winning Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar (Bad Education, Talk To Her, All About My Mother) is celebrated for his characteristically flamboyant and eccentric cinematic style. Three more of his films will now be available together in a DVD box-set.
Law of Desire (1987)
An unbridled send-up of the absurdities of human desire, a wildly funny film that took American and European audiences by storm and immediately established director Pedro Almodovar. ‘Law Of Desire’ features a fabulous trio – Pablo, a famous Madrid director for whom men are prepared to die, his new love-crazed boyfriend Antonio, and Pablo’s gorgeous and flamboyant transsexual sister Tina. Pablo is suffering because Juan, his lover, shares his steamy passion but not his commitment, and has returns to his village in southern Spain. Trying to forget him, Pablo is seduced by the tall, dark, handsome and heterosexual Antonio who, in the space of 24 hours, goes from having his first gay affir, to being Pablo’s demanding – and threatening – lover. Pablo makes the mistake of dismissing Antonio as inconsequential but Antonio intends to pursue his passions to their ultimate conclusion. Stars Antoio Banderas.
