Los Amantes Pasajeros (I’m So Excited)

Cert:15 • Spain: 90 min • El Deseo S.A. • May 3 2013

Pedro Almodóvar’s Los Amantes Pasajeros (I’m So Excited) is possibly his campest film to date.

“It’s a stylish, glossy cartoon of a film by someone at the absolute peak of his powers with nothing really to prove, so here he’s doing exactly what he wants, which is to delight and amuse.”

LGBT History Month Heroes – Day 2

Pedro Almodóvar, by Michael Langan.

To celebrate LGBT History Month, 2013, Polari is publishing a daily series of LGBT Heroes, selected by the magazine’s team of writers and special contributors.

“What I feel when I watch Almodóvar’s movies, as I regularly do, is something akin to love. I’m in love with his films and they make me fall in love with life.”

SP: 93 min • TLA Releasing • DVD

A refeshing comedy that owes a debt to Almodovar whilst remaining very much its own thing.

Chuecatown is populated with some of Spain’s finest actors, whose performances enhance an already rich script of feisty one liners and laugh-out-loud “I can’t believe they just said that” moments.
