Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Kika 1993
Kika is a 1993 black comedy film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar and starring Verónica Forqué as the title character. Forqué won the Goya Award for Best Actress, the second female lead on an Almodóvar film to do so.
Pedro Almodovar Film – When Nicholas (Peter Coyote), a famous American author, brings in a cosmetologist named Kika (Verónica Forqué) to prepare the corpse of his recently deceased son, Ramon (Alex Casanovas), Kika inadvertently revives the young man, then falls in love with him. Forces conspire against the couple, though, as Nicholas wants Kika for himself. Kika also must contend with the fact that her maid is sheltering her convict brother in her apartment while tabloid TV show “Today’s Worst” covers her romance.
Perez Prado‘s “Concierto para Bongó” serves as background music for some scenes, including the Pica’os self-flagellation scenes, a car chase and Kika’s rape scene (when replayed in television by Andrea). Tite Curet Alonso‘s song “Teatro”, as sung by La Lupe, is the film’s musical theme.
