This chapter discusses Calparsoro's second film Pasajes. For Pasajes, Calparsoro immersed himself a little more within the Spanish film industry by drawing on the support of one of the most noted production companies of the contemporary Spanish scene. This time Calparsoro had access to better resources than before, despite the struggle with funding—for example, a fight instructor, and the music of Alberto Iglesias, who started a regular collaboration with Almodovar in 1995. Calparsoro himself suggested that Almodovar had expected something different, more conventional, from the actual film. If the director's relationship with more established sectors of the industry was not always comfortable, the reception by the critics also showed a certain amount of impatience. The Spanish reaction to Pasajes thus proved to some extent similar to that of Salto, with somewhat less indulgence than that shown to a first-time feature-film director but with some effort to view both film and director as purveyors of some sort of art.
