#5 Broken Embraces

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.

    I’ve only read lukewarm reviews of the movie, but I liked it myself. Having said that, Almodóvar is my favorite director and it would be extremely hard for him to disappoint me. Broken Embraces ddoesn’t score very high on my list of favorite Almodóvar flicks, but I have to admit that I prefer it to Volver.
