Moreover, when the DVD version of Los abrazos rotos appeared in Spain it was as a luxury two-disc boxed edition, replete with the extras (the short film, a photo gallery, and footage of Pedro directing Penélope), which the perfectionist Almodóvar had long resisted providing for earlier releases. With characteristic reflexivity, these commercial questions are incorporated into the film itself, where the “making of ” footage shot by Martel’s gay son plays a significant part in the plot. The renewed debate between art film and genre movies, prominent in Spanish cinema of the 2000s, is also internalized in Los abrazos rotos, fed back into perceptions of Almodóvar’s own artistic development.

But, as if aware that this allegiance to old-school auteurism 32 Paul Julian Smith may no longer be shared by his audience, Almodóvar makes sure to embrace genre film with equal warmth. Mateo’s lost masterpiece Chicas y maletas, indulgently described as “a work of genius” by Judit in the final sequence of the film, is no Wellesian or neorealist drama but rather one of those farcical comedies that Almodóvar himself abandoned in the quest for “quality” that became so central to El Deseo’s corporate mentality.
