Several critics' taglines just say "Almodóvar is back to his best" and we were tempted to leave it at that too. He brings us the women's perspective of a story of angst; a mother who has lost touch with her daughter revisits her own life in flashbacks. Almodóvar creates a mystery out of this and, "Once again he's supremely confident in the unexplained and maestro-like in the reveal...Alberto Iglesias's mournful jazzy score is affecting, and the rest of the film's craft – cinematography, design, costumes – is typically exquisite" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out.
Nominated for the Palme D'Or at Cannes, all we can add is "welcome back, Pedro!"
