In August 2022, most of the movie was shot in the Tabernas Desert area of Almera in southern Spain. An old Portuguese fado song by Amália Rodrigues is called “A Strange Way of Life.” Pedro Almodóvar’s production company, El Deseo, and Saint Laurent, whose head designer Anthony Vaccarello was also an associate director and the film’s costume designer, worked together to make the movie.

In September, Hawke revealed on Instagram that filming was done on the project. Almodovar worked with people like José Luis Alcaine (cinematography) and Alberto Iglesias (music) on a regular basis. Teresa Font was in charge of cutting the film.

The director was quoted on the Dua Lipa podcast as saying, “It’s a gay Western in the sense that there are two guys who love each other. It’s a deep look at what it means to be a man since the Western is a male genre. I can tell you this about the movie: it has a lot of Western themes. It has the shooter, the ranch, and the sheriff. What most Westerners don’t have is the kind of conversation between two men that I don’t think has ever been shown in a Western.
