(Pedro Almodovar / 2009 / Spain / 129 minutes / Cert 15)

Pedro Almodovar teams up with Penelope ("ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER") Cruz once again in "BROKEN EMBRACES" ("LOS ABRAZOS ROTOS"), a drama set in the 1990's, but shot with a '50s noire sensibility. The action of the movie unfolds in two periods: flashing back and forth between the present day and 1994. In the film a movie director writes, lives and loves in darkness. Fourteen years before, he was in a brutal car crash on the island of Lanzarote. In the accident, he didn't lose only his sight, he also lost Lena (Penelope Cruz), the love of his life.
