About the Movie
In Julieta, critically acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar tells a story about a mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty and come to grips with fate. Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antia. They are both in pain over the loss of Xoan, Antia’s father and Julieta’s husband. But sometimes grief doesn’t bring people closer, it drives them apart. When Antia turns eighteen, she abandons her mother without a word of explanation. Julieta is haunted by the mystery of this loss and it pervades everything in her life. Her struggle and obsession lead to self discover and surprising revelations. Evoking such earlier Almodóvar films as High Heels and All About My Mother, Julieta reflects on the magic of chance encounters and the fragility of relationships in the face of long-buried secrets.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Julieta" is scrupulous, compassionate and surprising, even if it does not always quite communicate the full gravity and sweep of the feelings it engages.
Fresh: Almodovar's admiration for the Alice Munro short stories he is adapting is not misplaced. Despite rough patches, Julieta morphs into a haunting and hypnotic tribute to both their talents.
Fresh: Julieta is an enthralling meditation on the mechanics of memory and grief that will delight the sort of person who uses "Almodovarian" as an adjective.
Rotten: Almodovar makes a game effort to replicate Munro's complex, nonchronological storytelling, though the three tales don't hang together as well as one might hope.
Very dramatic and intriguing!
Almodovar is a genius storyteller. This movie is as good as his other wonderful movies. Julieta shows what grief really feels like. I can't wait to watch this movie again. Two thumbs up!
This movie is a great piece of film making on all levels. It should go down as a legitimate classic for its outstanding level of production. Absolutely perfect!
When love and destiny ride on the same train, witch one is responsible for the accident ? Almodovar knows how to ask a good question in beautiful saturated colors.
