Coronation Street - Pedro Almodóvar style

I'm a huge fan of the work of Pedro Almodóvar, the Spanish film director, screenwriter, producer and former actor.  This week I went to a preview screening of his new film Julieta which I enjoyed a great deal.  

It prompted me to think about an Almodóvar-Coronation Street mash-up blog post... 


Volver.  A woman kills her husband and hides his body in a chest freezer.
Corrie. A woman kills a drug dealer and hides his body in Gail's man-hole.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown meets Corrie's fellas on the verge of going for a pint.

All About my Mother.  Nothing more to say.

Broken Embraces. A couple take a break by the sea in Lanzarote.
Corrie. A couple take a break by the sea in Blackpool.

High Heels.  An icon emotes.
Ditto Coronation Street.

I'm So Excited meets Mr Gay Weatherfield

Julieta.  Towels at the ready at Audrey's salon for a haircut, please.

The Skin I Live In.  The skin being tiger or leopard print, of course.

There are still a lot of his films that I haven't covered, above. If you have any ideas, let me know!

awesome! Him indoors and I sometimes have had discussions on which character's in Corrie we'd cast in famous movies or tv shows. I must write it down the next time. (i.e. I seem to recall we had a younger Chesney as the child Luke Skywalker or was it the child Anakin? I can't remember!)
