Directed by Pedro Almodóvar
2019, Spain, 113 min
Spanish with English subtitles

A revival screening of his controversial classic reunites filmmaker Salvador (Antonio Banderas) with the film’s star, Alberto, a longtime junkie. Alberto lures Salvador into seeking solace in opiates, and reminds him of a script he abandoned long ago, opening up a flood of old acquaintances and vivid memories, involving his beloved mother (Penélope Cruz) and an old flame ravaged by addiction.

 

Reviews

A sensuous and deeply personal gem. Almodóvar has made a film about pleasure, which is itself a pleasure: witty, intelligent and sensuous. It is about love, memory, art, mothers, lovers. Cinematographer José Luis Alcane and production designer Antxón Gómez give the film a wonderful richness and warmth, the colours swarming and popping.
