Twenty-five years earlier, both the sheriff and Silva, the rancher who rides out to meet him, worked together as hired gunmen. Silva visits him with the excuse of reuniting with his friend from his youth, and they do indeed celebrate their meeting, but the next morning Sheriff Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their old friendship….
STRANGE WAY OF LIFE will be followed by THE HUMAN VOICE starring Tilda Swinton. Released during the pandemic this is another chance to see Pedro Almodóvar’s first English language short on the big screen.
