Mujeres Al Borde De Un Ataque De Nervios 1988

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Spanish: Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios) is a 1988 Spanish black comedy film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar, starring Carmen Maura and Antonio Banderas. The film brought Almodóvar to widespread international attention: it was nominated for the 1988 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and won five Goya Awards including Best Film and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Maura. It debuted at the 45th International Venice Film Festival and was released on 11 November 1988.

The music was composed by Bernardo Bonezzi (Sin noticias de Dios, Mari del Sud, ¿Qué he hecho yo para merecer esto!), Almodóvar’s usual composer during his first period. Far from a comedy score, Bonezzi’s music accompanies and envelops the character of Pepa (Carmen Maura) in the difficult moments that thread through the film as she searches for the lover who has abandoned her when he discovers she is pregnant. Bonezzi acknowledged it was a tribute to Bernard Herrmann and the Frank Skinner scores for the films of Douglas Sirk; it also includes a fun homage to Planet of the Apes by Jerry Goldsmith.

The album also includes the key songs that open and close the film: “Soy infeliz” performed by Lola Beltrán, and the famous “Puro Teatro” by La Lupe.
