Pedro Almodovar / 2006 / 35mm / 107 mins / Cert 15)
(Mon 16th-Wed 18th / various times / £4/3/2TTT)
One of the true masters of modern cinema, Almodovar is that rare beast who has made the move from daring agent provocateur of post-Franco Spanish cinema to acclaimed, Oscar winning international auteur without comprimising any of his original vision and bite. As daring and challenging as ever, Volver diplays a further development of Almodovars growing assurance as a master cinema atylist, as well as returning Penelope Cruz to her rightful home as (melo) dramatic heroine, after her recent follies at the hands of American studios.
