Almodóvar’s provocative first feature Pepi, Luci, Bom (1980) is set during Madrid’s punk era. The film is an outrageous comedy which follows close friends, docile housewife Luci (Siva), her trendy, marijuana smoking neighbour Pepi (Maura) and rock star Bom (Gara). Events take a shocking turn when Pepi is raped by a policeman.
