all about my mother

This film by Pedro Almodovar’s won the Golden Globe for best foreign film, and won the Academy Award for best foreign film. Regardless, it’s an excellent film about the relationships between unrelated women (and former men) who make their own family. In true Almodovar style, the colors are bright and garish, the dialogue is tongue-in-cheek, yet the subjects are weighty. AIDs, prostitution, organ donation, and plastic surgery are all tackled without the usual melodrama. Highly recommended. In Spanish with subtitles. [spain, 1999]
