This is the soundtrack of the new collaboration between the Academy Award winning Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar and the composer Alberto Iglesias (two-times Academy Award nominee for The Constant Gardener and The Kite Runner.)
After the success achieved in its seven previous collaborations (including Volver, Talk to Her, All About My Mother, Bad Education and Broken Embraces.) Alberto Iglesias has created for this film his absolute masterpiece for the Almodóvar cinema. A passionate, lyrical and emotional journey through the darker side of human beings.

Performed by The London Session Orchestra, the album includes the complete Iglesias score and various songs by Concha Buika, Trentmöller and Chris Garneau, which form an important part in the film’s storyline.

“There is a surging Hitchcockian orchestral score and a breathless sense of imminent violence.”
-The Guardian UK

“Alberto Iglesias' arresting score, marked by cacophonous violins and frenzied, weblike repetitions, musically conjures the spider-and-fly metaphor”
