    A ghost story, spoiler.

    Almodóvar stays with his favorite theme: women. Penélope Cruz steals the show, as she floats between vulnerability and complete domination of scene after scene. When she lip syncs "Volver", by Carlos Gardel, your soul (if you have one) is moved, perhaps stolen.

    High art.

    It is exactly a Soap Opera. But this is one of the very best feature length Soap Operas you'll ever see.

    The presence of television throughout the film just served to highlight that Almodovar is intending this as a Soap.

    An excellent movie about strong women and the men in their lives that prey on them from an early age. Portrayed very passionately and with great emotional intimacy. Magnificent movie! 5 years 1 month ago
