PRESENTED BY SCREEN NEXT THE SEA
at Alderman Peel High School, Market Lane, Wells NR23 1 RB
Foreign language with subtitles
Directed by Pedro Almodovar and starring Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suarez and Daniel Grao
Loosely based on three Alice Munroe short stories seen through Spanish Director Almodovar's eyes. A chance encounter causes a woman (Emma Suarez) to reflect on the tragic circumstances surrounding the disappearance of her daughter.
"Told in flashback over 30 years of guilt and grief, this tender melodrama is the directors best film in a decade." Mark Kermode The Guardian. "Almodovar is known to be a fan of mother-daughter film melodramas; he is the one contemporary director who can make films that have the same heady feel as old Hollywood classics in the way they deal with the ruptures of family life". Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent.
