Almodovar honoured by AMPAS in London

Spanish director Pedro Almodovar was honoured Thursday night by AMPAS, the organisation behind the Oscars. The film maker, who helmed All About My Mother, Volver, and Talk To Her, has won nearly a hundred awards in his forty year career. "I mean I never think about tributes and awards but when they arrive, when they come -- they make me feel very happy because this is in any case about my work or so and my work -- is my life. So, no I am very happy." "I mean my dream was yes at least to make a 16 mm movie and that see to be a very underground filmmaker so this is like, this is incredible for me." Rossy de Palma starred in Almodovar's breakthrough film "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" which, as usual, centres around strong female characters. A host of designers, writers, actors and directors turned out to celebrate the 63-year-old's unique style of cinema. "At the same time you have all, you have tragedy, you have drama, you have like comedy and you can enjoy. So it's fine, it's like always a surprise and a little provocative which is always good." Almodovar's next film "I'm So Excited" is expected to be released next August.
