I'm So Excited! [Los Amantes Pasajeros]

3rd May 2013 -

 Movie Review

Fans of more recent Almodovar films like The Skin I Live In or Volver should be warned about this one, because it harks back to his much cheesier 1980s films with its broad comedy, lurid...

The Headless Woman [La Mujer Sin Cabeza]

19th February 2010 -

 Movie Review

There's so much going on in between the lines of this film that it can seem almost overwhelming to watch. But gifted filmmaker Martel has crafted an unnervingly internalised thriller for adventurous moviegoers.When Veronica (Onetto),...

Broken Embraces [los Abrazos Rotos]

28th August 2009 -

 Movie Review

Perhaps not as dazzling as Almodovar's masterpieces, this film is still an involving and sleekly well-made melodrama touching on his usual themes of romance, death and parentage. It also has some terrific noir touches as...

The Flower of My Secret

My Life Without Me

1st November 2005 -

 Movie Review

Focusing an entire dramatic film on death can be tricky. Death drives an enormous range of emotions, from fear to sadness, to curiosity; yet, most movies treat death with overwrought nobility, excessive weepiness, or yikes,...
