Pedro Almodovar Quotes / Quotations

Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


Cukor is one of my favorite directors. He was a master at directing women.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


Even though I love my mother, I didn't want to make an idealized portrait of her. I'm fascinated more by her defects - they are funnier than her other qualities.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


Hospitals are places that you have to stay in for a long time, even if you are a visitor. Time doesn't seem to pass in the same way in hospitals as it does in other places. Time seems to almost not exist in the same way as it does in other places.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar

Quotation of Pedro Almodovar

Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


I don't want to imitate life in movies; I want to represent it. And in that representation, you use the colors you feel, and sometimes they are fake colors. But always it's to show one emotion.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


I think decor says a lot about someone's social position, their taste, their sensibility, their work - and also about the aesthetic way I have chosen to tell their story.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


I think it's a change that I did not intend at the time but it is clear that, from The Flower of My Secret on, there is a change in my films. A lot of the journalists have very generously attributed this to my growing maturity.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar

Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


It's a pity that I can never really enjoy my movies because, after the mixing, your capacity as a spectator just disappears. I have to think about what I felt just before the mixing.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


The 1980s really ended for me in 1992 with the film Kika.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


The challenge to me as a director was for the audience to see the film as going on in a straight line, so that they did not sense all of these break-ups. I did not want a film to be a collage of all these images.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


The Flower of My Secret is definitely more based in true emotions. I also wanted to make something more realistic, but not naturalistic or simple.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


The silent film has a lot of meanings. The first part of the film is comic. It represents the burlesque feel of those silent films. But I think that the second part of the film is full of tenderness and emotion.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


When I choose a color, it's often intuitively, but always with a cinematic sense.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar

Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


With this silent film, I wanted to hide what was going on in the clinic. I wanted to cover it up in the best cinematic way and in an entertaining manner.
Quotation of Pedro Almodovar


Yes, women are stronger than us. They face more directly the problems that confront them, and for that reason they are much more spectacular to talk about. I don't know why I am more interested in women, because I don't go to any psychiatrists, and I don't want to know why.
