Pedro Almodóvar’s masterful look at three generations of women whose lives are linked by a cyclic chain of events.

Raimunda (a brilliant Penélope Cruz) has her hands full dealing with multiple jobs and the living but things get more complicated with a visit from the dead resulting in some unexpected surprises. Death and murder kick-start a cycle of events which shape the lives of six women who end up trusting each other. The other women being Raimunda’s daughter Paula (Yohana Cobo), her sister Sole (Lola Dueñas), mother Irene (Carmen Maura), Irene’s sister Tía Paula (Chus Lampreave) and neighbour Agustina (Blanca Portillo).

Almodóvar pays a loving tribute to his native La Mancha by saturating the screen with eye-popping colour and layering the film with his trademark suspense and seductive elements. As in his other films, women take centre stage and their remarkable performances resulted in the entire female cast sharing the Best Actress Award at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival while Almodóvar took the best screenplay. VOLVER is vintage Almodóvar and pure Cinema!
