Almodovar is Back...

...With "Los Abrazos Rotos" (The Broken Hugs), his next movie.

His blog has some material about the movie but the best part of the blog is where he talks about his "COMPROMISOS SOCIALES" (Social Commitments) and shares with us the story about how the Principality of Monaco cntacted him with "...an unprecedented project: they had thought that the theme (aesthetic and cultural, the leitmotif that would provide the ornamental and musical content) for the traditional “Rose Ball” -their well known charity ball- would be the “Movida Madrileña”. As Supposed Emperor of that Movida, they were asking for my opinion about it and if I could collaborate minimally in preparing the event. My first reaction was a feeling of absurdity and the second was that I found the idea enormously flattering. "

So he decided to take matters into his own hands, and among other things, he made the invitation (see below).

But the whole narration in his own words of how he prepared for this picture and event is something you can't miss. So here is the link to it in Spanish (if you can read Spanish go with this one) and here you can read the same story in English. Just look for the "Social Commitments" and "Image Problems" titles, and enjoy it!
