Volver (2006)

Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Penélope Cruz – Raimunda
Carmen Maura – Irene
Lola Dueñas – Sole
Blanca Portillo – Agustina
Yohana Cobo – Paula

After her death, a mother returns to her home town in order to fix the situations she couldn’t resolve during her life.

Quirky little drama that is multi faceted, maybe a little too much. It is a good watch but I did struggle to find it’s Oscar winning credentials. The story plays out well enough but I didn’t find anything outstanding and as I indictated before I think the story diluted too much through taking so many different directions. Average.
