Almodovar's work and the question of womanhood

Almodovar is working on his next project, Silencio, which will be based around female protagonists and the difficulty of being a woman in the face of crisis.
How is this theme recurrent in Almodovar’s filmography? How is womanhood an essential theme in his work and why?

  • This is an excellent topic. Almodovar's films, more than almost any male director I can think of, delve deeply into what it means to be a woman; among them All About My Mother, Volver, and of course Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. – HesseBunuel90 7 years ago
