But what is Strange Way of Life about? It is a western shot in southern Spain, which tells of a man, called Silva, who crosses the desert on horseback to get to Bitter Creek. His purpose is to visit Sheriff Jake with whom he worked twenty-five years ago. As soon as they meet, the two celebrate their reunion, but the next morning, Jake informs Silva that the real reason they met again is certainly not to remember past times, but there is much more. Strange Way of Life is written and directed by Pedro Almodovar and produced by The desire. Beyond Ethan Hawke e Peter Pascalappear in the cast Peter Casablanc, Manu Rios, Joseph Countess, George Steane, Jason Fernandez, Ohiana Cueto, Sarah Salamo e Daniela Medina. The director explained his film thus:

The strange way of living, to which the title refers, alludes to the famous fado by Amalia Rodrigues, whose text suggests that there is no existence stranger than the one lived by turning one’s back on one’s desires.

Almodóvar’s success in Cannes

Strange Way of Life is the Spanish director’s second film in the English language. There had been before The Human Voice, with Tilda Swinton. The new film once again strengthens the bond that the director has with the Cannes Film Festival which has already crowned him winner of several awards and President of the Jury, in 2017. Among the awards obtained, we mention that of Best Director for the debut film All about my mother (1999) and Best Screenplay for Volver – come back (2006). In 2004, Pedro Almodóvar also had the honor of presenting, as the opening film of the Festival, Bad Education; it was the first time for a Spanish film.
