Another fantastic outing from the master - inspired by upcoming feature 'Broken Embraces (Los abrazos rotos) this short features the charatcers Pina, Maribel and Chon, with a witty and subversive monologue from the latter.
This is Almodóvar's first short film in 30 years and was apparently filmed in a corner of the Broken Embraces set. Almodóvar has stressed that it's quite different in tone and style to the feature .
Ever the entertainer, the credits include: direction by Mateo Blanco (AKA Almodóvar) and 'Guion' Harry "Huracan" Caine (AKA Almodóvar).
It debuted exclusively on Canal+ Spain on Friday 13th March, without subtitles. I spent a long time trying to find a version with English subtitles and couldn't (as of May 2009) so decided to make my own (hence they're not 'official'). It took me a while so I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I do.
