Director: Pedro Almodovar
Cast: Penelope Cruz, Lluis Homar
After the success of their collaboration on Volver, Pedro Almodóvar and Penélope Cruz are once again working together; this time on a film entitled Los Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces).The film follows a blind screenwriter and former director Mateo Blanco, living a double life under the pseudonym of Harry Caine. The man writes lives and loves in the darkness. He was the victim of a brutal car accident fourteen years ago. Not only did he lose his sight, but also the woman of his life, Lena (Penelope Cruz). I have never been disappointed with Pedro Almodovar, and we’re expecting big things from Broken Embraces, one of our most anticipated films of 2009.
