All About My Mother (1999)

To Bette Davis, Gena Rowlands, Romy Schneider. To all the actresses who have played actresses, to all women who act, to men who act to become women. To all the people who want to be mothers. 

To my mother.

- Pedro Almodóvar

Seventeen years ago, I made this same journey… but in the opposite direction, from Barcelona to Madrid. I was running away then too but I wasn’t alone. I was carrying Esteban inside me. I was running away from his father then and now I’m going in search of him.
