Returning to the female world

14 years, 6 months 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

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

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!

"First viewing - May 23rd I really enjoyed Volver, though its "mystery" was fairly obvious to me long before the characters figured out what was going on. Thankfully the cast is so stellar throughout that I hardly minded. Plus it's a heartfelt story that thoughtfully explores death and family. I'm so glad I finally caught up with it."

" 8.4 - I am not really a fan of Penelope Cruz performances but this one wasn't bad at all. It may be a bit predictable after half the movie but it's still as good and I just love Pedro Almodovar so this goes on top. "
