Pedro Almodóvar switches to something a little more frivolous after delving into the darkness with plastic surgery thriller The Skin I Live In. New comedy I'm So Excited is very much Carry On Across the Airways as he tracks the lives of passengers and crew on a flight from Spain to Mexico City.
It's as camp as Christmas and light as a feather, but there's fun to be had in this absurdist comedy in the clouds. Almodóvar regulars Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz make fleeting appearances as squabbling baggage handlers at the start of the film, but the baton is swiftly passed on to air stewards Joserra (Javier Cámara), Ulloa (Raúl Arévalo) and Fajas (Carlos Areces) for the mile-high shenanigans.

We’ve just received news from Pathé and Twentieth Century Fox about the release Pedro Almodóvar’s new film I’M So Excited! The film follows a very mixed group of travellers are in a life-threatening situation on board a plane flying to Mexico City and is released in the UK on Friday 3 May.
Their defenselessness in the face of danger provokes a general catharsis that ends up becoming the best way to escape from the idea of death. This catharsis, developed in the tone of a riotous, moral comedy, fills the time with unforeseeable confessions that help them forget the anguish of the moment and face the greatest of dangers, that which they each carry within themselves. It looks a lot of fun, check out the ridiculous trailer:
