PEPI, LUCI, BOM
[PEPI, LUCI, BOM, Y OTRAS CHICAS DEL MONTÓN]
Pedro Almodóvar's first feature explores life in Madrid during Spain's infamous Movida Madrileña, the exuberant post-Franco counter-cultural movement of which Almodóvar himself was a driving force. Highlighting punks, musicians, wild parties, drugs, empowered women and lots of sex, Almodóvar crafts a crazy and daring comedy that epitomizes the barrier-breaking thirst of a taboo-ridden society experiencing the resurgence of democracy and its corresponding freedoms. DIR/SCR Pedro Almodóvar; PROD Pepón Coromina, Pastora Delgado, Ester Rambal. Spain, 1980, color, 82 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
