yes if you haven't i highly recomend it...sorry can't think of the Spanish director...but what he see's in his movies are what you and me would see...i don't make a lot of sense i know. but the pain that the main character goes through...the emotions are real...beautiful...beautiful

oh and if your interested in seeing something not quite like his other popular films, you must see "The Devils Backbone" thriller yes, so visual, intense. not your average horror movie...stylized this movies absorbs all your senses

Just so you know, Almodóvar directed All about my mother whereas the Devil's Backbone was Guillermo del Toro - the latter is very very not Almodovarian.

the first Almodovar movie i saw was Talk To Her. . .i was completely blown away! addicted! enthralled!

i've watched every Almodovar movie i can get my hands on now!

i would highly recommend All About My Mother! just like all of his movies. . .it's full of surprises. . .often funny. . .and always charming!

the devil's backbone is good. . .but yeah. . .it's directed by Guillermo del Toro whose movies are nothing like Almodovar's. . .if you can find it i'd recommend a stop-motion animated short by del Toro called The Eighth Day of Creation. Very creepy and beautiful!

I recommand to watch the films of 80' : Matador (the bullfighter) and "la ley del deseo" (law of desire)...

i didn't like the end of the movie. it's an unrealistic finale for a great film. and i didn't like either penelope cruz' performance. i usually don't. i have to watch "Volver", everyone says it's her best acting moment. let's see.
