Almodovar does it again. This tour de force stars Penelope Cruz as a mother fighting for her daughter, while battling demons from her own past, including infidelity, incest, and a mother seemlingly back from the dead and living with her sister. With allusions to Two Women, this is being hailed as Cruz’s best performance, but the ensemble cast and intricate plot twists, are also big stars. Like the best of Almodovar’s films, this one features humor, pathos, drama, and supernatural events, all rolled up into one highly provocative and entertaining package. [spain, 2006]
