"Yo quiero ser una chica Almodóvar" ("I wanna be an Almodóvar girl")

Post  Guest on Tue Jan 17, 2012 10:36 am

That's what singer Joaquín Sabina stated in his song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-516Lc3IWk)

Recently (at the Golden Globe Awards), Angelina Jolie asked Almodóvar to be one... and she got his promise. I'd have never imagined her as one... indeed I have to force my mind (but who knows).

Almodóvar sure has given job to a lot of actresses. How do you recognize them? Who are they?

^ Like a good ghost, Carmen Maura hides under the bed...



... or dyes her hair in "Volver" (with Lola Dueñas)




Here in "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown"



As Pepi in "Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls on the Heap" (in Spanish it rhymes) (Wiki: It is Almodóvar's first feature film. It became a cult film, emblematic of La Movida Madrileña, a period characterized by a sense of cultural and sexual freedom.)

I don't think I have enough hair to be an ALMODÓVAR GIRL.

No problem, Pinz. Antonia San Juan didn't have a lot things... but she managed to be one:

Edit: I don't know why here you don't see the subtitles but if you watch it on youtube you do

You are complaining too much - I'm starting to think you don't want to be one Evil or Very Mad

Do you even see a "no" option in the poll?

Instead of being one, could I date them instead? I'm up to it--I've been there.

Case in point (from the photography thread):

By pure coincidence, I just got an e-mail from Grushenka--from Finland. Shocked

Almodóvar girls are volatile, but I'm a good listener, which makes it easier (though still not easy).

But if they ask for advice, what can you say?

I usually say something like "It could be worse, and no doubt will be." Laughing

A friend who works for TV as a technician asked us (my friends and I) if we want to attend the Goya Awards, that she can get us in.
Do you think I'll have the chance to talk to the person who gave life to Vera Cruz... she'll be there I love you

High expectations and disappointment go together. Neutral

So go with low expectations. What a Face

Laughing I'm not really expecting meeting her


hmmm
I notice you changed "unpredictable" for "volatile"
"volatile" has instability connotations that "unpredictable" might not have

Do you agree with the change?

[It's from the guy point of view, of course]

Most of Almodóvar girls don't look very stable cheers

Somewhat related to this topic, here's a pic from a Russian Miniseries called "Sonya Golden hand," about a legendary 19th century jewel thief from Odessa (Anton Chekhov visited her in prison in 1903).
She's probably related to Grushenka
