Returning to the female world

6 years, 1 month ago at Mar 16 21:43

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

''It smells of... farts, my mother's farts.''

After her death, a mother returns to her home town in order to fix the situations she couldn't resolve during her life.

Penélope Cruz: Raimunda

Director of Volver, Pedro Almodovar has captured the essence of female beauty with Volver, which in turn should probably be considered his greatest tribute to the ... read more

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.

My movie year 2014 (217 movies items)

"10.1. (Kirjasto-DVD) Faija yrittää raiskata kännissä tyttärensä, saa itse puukosta ja päätyy ravintolatoimintaa aloittelevan vaimonsa toimesta ruokapaikan pakkaseen. Samalla tämän äiti kummittelee menemään ja sitä rataa. Almodovarin hämärä tyyli yhdistettynä audiovisuaaliseen karkkiin takaavat kelpo katselutuokion. Ohjaajan naarmuttamiseen taipuvaisilta suomifaneilta sen sijaan pitäisi poikkaista kirjastokortit."

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
