121 mins – Spain 2006 – Subtitles – Dir: Pedro Almodóvar
Starring: Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura and Lola Dueñas
Raimunda and her sister Sole are visited by the apparition of their Mother, who has returned to reconcile with her daughters and resolve an issue that has haunted the family since her death.
In Pedro Almodóvar’s critically-acclaimed film, the living and the deceased co-exist without discord, creating a filmic experience which is at once hilarious and yet filled with a deep, genuine emotion. VOLVER is a film about life in the director’s native La Mancha; a film about the way the presence of the dead continues to add richness and humanity to the lives of those they leave behind.
