The Oscar®-winning Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is celebrated for his characteristically flamboyant and eccentric cinematic style. Four of his early films, including his first ever feature film, Pepi, Luci, Bom, along with Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Dark Habits and What Have I Done To Deserve This? are now available together in this collector’s boxset.
As well as sealing the collaborations that Almodóvar had made with the actors from his Los Goliardos days (including Carmen Maura), the films from this period also display his acute visual style and recurring thematic obsessions such as sexual violence, female masochism and addiction. It was this epoch that also bought the first of numerous Academy Award® nominations for Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
