After veering off into some pretty deep psychologically disturbing territory with The Skin I Live In, it’s a welcome change to see iconic Spanish director Pedro Almodovar tackling some lighter material with his latest film, I’m So Excited. Still featuring his signature vibrant use of color and large personalities, the high-flying chamber comedy looks as meticulously crafted as his previous films but this time with laughs and a lightness we’re always pleased to see from the director who can take on any genre and still keep his style.
With an ensemble cast of Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, Paz Vega, and Javier Cámara (to name a few), the latest Spanish language trailer transports us into what looks like the most colorful plane ride we’ve ever been on. Although the IMDB synopsis reads: plot unknown, the comedy takes place during a plane accident with the passengers and crew fearing for their own lives, confessing their inner secrets—which sounds like the perfect premise for a comedy, right?!
The film opens Mach 8th in Spain and you can catch it in US cinemas later in the year from Sony Pictures Classics. Check out the trailer and new stills from the film below.
