Director: Pedro Almodovar. Cast: Penelope Cruz, Lluis Homar, Blanca Portillo. 127 min. Rated R. Spain. Drama.
Another Almodovar project about colorful confusions and hatred in parent-sibling relationships, but this time in a film-within-a-film context, illustrating metaphorical concepts such as a filmmaker who cannot see, a film that cannot be heard, or a movie without an ending. I've always had some difficulty getting in touch with Almodovar's world, and showing the blind filmmaker here feeling the beauty of two lovers on screen by touching the screen, with all its cinematic creativity, is really pushing it. I still liked Volver better.
