BROKEN EMBRACES, A film by Pedro Almodvar, R, 128min, In Spanish with English subtitles.
âCruz exudes a sensual aura of mystery that holds you spellbound. And Almodvar, a true poet of cinema, creates images -- horrifying and healing -- that live inside your head like a waking dream. You want to miss a movie like that? I didnât think so.â â Rolling Stone
After the success of Volver, Pedro Almodvar works again with Penlope Cruz in his latest, a noir-style film about memory and hidden identities. Mateo Blanco is a film director who was blinded and lost the love of his life, Lena (Penlope Cruz), in a brutal car accident 14 years earlier. He no longer directs films, but has become a successful writer. He now lives under the pseudonym Harry Caine. After his secretaryâs son, Diego, is injured, Harry takes care of him, begins to tell him of the events of 14
years earlier and the film moves backwards and forwards in time.
