VOLVER review

VOLVER is film by acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar. It is Penelope Cruz’s first time starring in a film in Spanish. It follows the lives of the women of a family and the deaths in the family and how they deal with them. I didn’t enjoy this film that much. It seems to be aimed mostly at women, and there doesn’t seem to be any driving force behind the plot at all. The sound and shooting seemed just to be average. There was some humorous dialogue in there, but not consistently. See this if you can really be bothered, it wasn’t that bad. 2/5
