I have a keen interest in Almodovar's films but watching this pedestrian documentary was a serious disappointment - nothing but TV format clichés by a mediocre director. Even the TV format duration - 49 minutes - is laughable: how can one possible deal in depth with one of Europe's finest directors given such a time limit? The major problem with info docs like this (the kind that are never selected for international festivals or nominated for important prizes) - is the lack of form and vision, two qualities that bring a sense of originality to what you're watching.
The ridiculously high score (it helps having friends pushing the score up for you) is in no way a reality of what's in store for the viewer. I gave it a 1 out of sheer rage for wasting my precious time.
