More Almodovar


Salty Miss Jill, in comments on Broken Embraces, mentions Rossy de Palma, a star among star for Almodovar fans. I wanted to mention one of the movie’s highpoints is her cameo, playing the crazy (literally) wife in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. She makes the most of the bit, appearing with a wadded up piece of red paper in her mouth. It takes a real star to pull off an entrance like that.

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.

    The niche perfumer Etat Libre d'Orange has a fragrance called Rossy de Palma and it's the intense dark bloodblack rose with a ton of spice and a metal edge. It's not for me, but it's amazing.
