Why watch this film?
Pedro Almodóvar brings a colorful, lively and attractive movie with a completely obscure story. In 'Volver' we follow a family story composed only by female characters - men are completely unnecessary in the narrative. The Spanish director makes a beautiful work to celebrate female strength, even though in our machist society this fact often goes unnoticed. As in all of Almodóvar's filmography, the soundtrack of the movie is impeccable, as well as the cast formed by Penélope Cruz, nominated for an Oscar for her role, Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas and Yohana Cobo. In short, 'Volver' manages to be a gracious, disturbing, funny and very relevant production.
Penelope Cruz's first Oscar nomination. Two sisters return to their city in the countryside of Spain and are surprised by the presence of their dead mother. A beautiful tale about families and their ghosts in one of Pedro Almodóvar's most celebrated films.
