The Plane's Going Down? Time To Dance! First Teaser For Almodovar's LOS AMANTES PASAJEROS

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Restless Spanish talent Pedro Almodovar went about as dark as he ever has with his last picture - the fabulous The Skin I Live In - and it would appear he's looking to cleanse his palette from that experience with something far more light and frothy with his next effort, Los Amantes Pasajeros (I'm So Excited).

A musical comedy set aboard a plane that may or may not be about to crash this is a bold and colorful song and dance picture and Almodovar is pulling out the stops with the picture's first teaser. The director describes the film like this:

The 'passengers love' tells the story of a group of people trapped in a single set, and disconnected from the outside. Writing the script began as a whim and ended up comedian as an ensemble comedy, moral, oral and unreal, or unrealistic. I tried to leave reality aside, but sometimes reality is strained without you noticing. I have had no conscious film reference during pregnancy, is more present theater, even television, and my claustrophobia, than film. I am of such directors to which television influences them but not see it. I am appalled and yet I love the new narrative television.

In any case, the word is the main character. I have always confessed that my vocation was to become a great novelist, and I exercised while waiting for when the time came I wrote a lot of scripts, but over time I've become a great novelist, not even a novelist, I guess in recent scripts is where most perceived nostalgia for fictional narrative, but I wrote 'Lovers passengers' from another nostalgia, theater. My films owe much to the theater, are filled with scenes of two monologues indisimulados [?] sometimes. In this [film] there are more characters than usual but less space than ever. There have been several films about a group trapped, you can not leave where you are, (and the TV is full of competition and survival claustrophobic) from Luis Bunuel's 'The Exterminating Angel,' to 'Buried' by Rodrigo Cortez [sic] where everything happens in the smallest space imaginable, a coffin.
