About the Movie

Pedro Almodóvar's Volver (Coming Back) is set in Madrid's lively working-class neighborhoods, where three generations of women survive wind, fire and even death, thanks to goodness, audacity and a limitless vitality. They are Raimunda (Penélope Cruz), who is married to an unemployed laborer and has a teenage daughter (Yohana Cobo); Sole (Lola Dueñas), her sister, a hairdresser; and the mother of both (Carmen Maura), who died in a fire along with her husband. The presence of the mother, whose reappearance in death seems to arise out of a need to fix the situations she couldn't resolve in life, gradually becomes a comfort to her daughters as well as her grandchild. The female ensemble cast together was awarded Best Actress at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A deeply entertaining experience that engages our hearts as well as our funny bones. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: [A] gritty melodrama tempered by surreal black humor. – Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Pedro Almodovar whipstitches a movie from patches of those mother-daughter melodramas Mildred Pierce, Bellissima and Two Women and makes it seamless and original, funny as it is fierce, breathtaking as it is life-affirming. – Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Volver qualifies as a must-see movie for the director's fans or for those who wish to admire one of the greatest living cinema artists. – Matt Weitz, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Saw this fpr Spanish Class

Worth seeing if you need a spanish movie to study and it was good to watch
Cruz is hot in it as well

A luscious, riveting film

This movie is one of my favorites. Cruz is always at her best in Spanish and with Almodovar, but this movie is above all others. The look, the story, and the acting are excellent. Watch it.
