Pedro Almodvar makes a triumphant return to the screen in this rich tale of three generations of women who manage to survive everyday life by means of goodness, occasional lies and boundless vitality.

Raimunda (Pnelope Cruz) is struggling to make ends meet, holding down several jobs while supporting her unemployed husband and teenage daughter. When Raimunda and her sister are visited by the ghost of their dead mother, Irene (Carmen Maura) it becomes clear that some long-repressed family issues remain unresolved. Spontaneous and endearing, Volver exudes warmth, humour and genuine emotion.

  • Beautiful ... cool story

  • Slow to start, thought about stopping but did improve after 45mins and ended up worth watching. But I thought Cruz looked too beautiful for the character she played, so detracted from credibility of film for me.

  • Fabulous in every way; Pedro Almodovar as good as ever.

  • Incredible, moving and intriguing from the start. What a great movie!

  • Haven't seen it for a while but I loved it. Cruz is the whole package; feminist, funny, sad, crazy, and of course very sexy. Add in the amazing Aldomavar and an awesome script. A film about women that most men could learn a lot from.
