Adult concepts, occasional sexual activity
|Actors:||Antonio Banderas, Assumpta Serna, Nacho Martinez, Carmen Maura|
A sexy, stylish and highly original black comedy from Oscar winner Pedro Almodovar, featuring a star-making performance from Antonio Banderas, Matador is a blood-dripping celebration of the darker side of human nature - with an unflinching look at the link between sex, death and religion.
Angel (Antonio Banderas) is a committed bullfighting student, drawn to the age-old traditions passed down to him from veteran matador Diego (Nacho Martinez). Driven by his obsession and the respect of his mentor, Angel turns up the heat and turns on to killing, revelling in the sexual thrill of the kill!
Confessing to a string of murders, Angel garners the attention of mysterious feminist lawyer Maria (Assumpta Serna), with an ulterior motive, who soon develops similar kinky hang-ups - leading the pair to embark on a scintillating journey of sex, death and self-discovery.
Original and outrageous, oozing with erotic energy, as only Almodovar would have it, Matador is a cult classic wickedly waving a red cape to anyone who dares to disagree!
