Summary
Manuela, a single mother, accidentally loses her 17-year-old son and starts searching for the father of the child. The latter lives as a transvestite prostitute in Barcelona. The film offers a gallery of women’s portraits—nurses, actresses, transvestite prostitutes, nuns—facing by themselves life and its attendant tragedies: the death of a son, drugs, AIDS. However there is no major male part in this film in which the world seems to belong to the women who are facing men that are missing, are inconsistent, or have bluntly decided to change their gender. All about My Mother takes place in the new Spain of the '90s: the sexual liberation and cultural explosion that transformed within two decades the oldest European dictatorship into an ultramodern country in which, after the "movida" years in Madrid, Barcelona has become the coolest city in Europe. But it also has its dark side: the fashionable metropolis is the capital of drugs, prostitution, and AIDS. The film embraces transgender theories and offers in its filigree a new design of the family: one no longer based on genetic links, but on elective affinities. A master of bad taste and of the mixing of genres as well as a big fan of melodramas and intricate plots, Pedro Almodovar films according to a particular aesthetic: multicultural, neo-baroque, both popular and avant-garde, kitsch, and intellectual
