After building his incredibilly successful career through productions focused basically on the feminine universe, Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar (one of my all-time favorites), made in his last two films stories that are centered in an more masculin look, resulting on the great Talk to Her (Hable con ella) and the exceptional Bad Education(La Mala Educación). In Volver, however, Almodóvar ret... read more

unexpected subtlety from Almodovar

A feminist tale, with Penelope Cruz a little too glamorous despite her wardrobe. A family coping with the loss of their mother come face to face with a ghost, who helps them put their lives back together. The gorgeous flamenco song of the title is sung by Estrella Morente.

Raimunda (Cruz) and her sister Sole lost their parents in a tragic fire years ago...or did they? Superstitious villagers claim that the girls' departed mother, Irene (Maura), has been wandering around their Aunt Paula's home. When Irene appears to Sole, she explains that she has returned to set right her daughters' troubled lives and reveal shocking secrets that will impact everyone! Raimunda has "female troubles" of ther own, least of which is a corpse in the freezer!

A good movie

“If I recall correctly, I saw this movie at my aunt's when I was on holiday in France. My wife was pretty sick (food poisoning or something like that) and while she was recovering, I ended up watching a whole bunch of dvds my aunt owned. Anyway, when this movie was released, there was a pretty good buzz about it so I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though I did enjoy it, for me, this movie ended up in the long list of a movies directed by Pedro Almodovar which I found decent but not really mind-blowing (other examples are ‘Los abrazos rotos’, ‘La mala educacion’, ‘Todo sobre mi madre’,… ). By now, I have seen more than 10 movies directed by the Spanish master and I guess his work is not really my thing (except for ‘Hable con ella’ which I found really am” read more

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"16.10. Paljon on naisia tavalla tai toisella kuolemaan liittyvien ongelmien parissa, eikä insestiä ja raiskausta jätetä käsittelemättä. Kokonaisuus voisi ehkä olla hieman hiotumpi ja yhtenäisempi, ja lopussa ehkä selitellään liikaa, mutta hienoja hetkiä, oivalluksia ja näyttelijäsuorituksia riittää alusta loppuun. Tahtoo nähdä lisää Penelopea Almodovarin elokuvissa."
