  • Title:
    Volver
  • Author: Esther García 1956- producer.; Pedro Almodóvar director.; Deseo, S.A., presenter.
  • Description: From two-time Academy Award-winner Pedro Almodóvar (2003, Best Original Screenplay, Talk to Her, 2000, Best Foreign Language Film, All About My Mother), comes Volver, a comedic and compassionate tribute to women and their resilience in the face of life's most outrageous tribulations. A luminous Penélope Cruz leads an ensemble of gifted actresses, including Carmen Maura (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown). Raimunda (Cruz) and her sister Sole lost their parents in a tragic fire years ago ... or did they? Superstitious villagers claim that the girls' departed mother, Irene (Maura), has been seen wandering around their Aunt Paula's home. When Irene appears to Sole, she explains that she has returned to set right her daughter's troubled lives and reveal shocking secrets that will impact, everyone! Raimunda has "female troubles" of her own, least of which is a corpse in the freezer! Winner of numerous film festival and critics' awards, Volver is a hilarious tale of love, loss and forgiveness.
