The official website of Spanish flamvoyant director Pedro Almodóvar. Some of his film credits include Talk to Her (2002), Live Flesh (1997) and All About My Mother (1999) which won an Oscar for best foreign film.
All About My Mother was filmed is Barcelona Spain, has Penelope Cruz as one of the cast members and was filmed along side the beautifully colorful mosaic and renaissance influenced, Palau de la Musica Catalan.
An auditorium built in 1908 to house the Orfeo Catalan choir, it has hosted orchestral performances by Palestrina, Bach, Beethoven, Wagner among others.
The palau is one of the few theaters or music halls worldwide to have been declared a World Heritage Site. I have photos from the Palau when I visited a few years back on a holiday, I’ll post them in the gallery soon.
All About My Mother is screening on SBS this wednesday night.
