last night i saw volver for the first time (which really is a crime...i should have seen it back in 2006 when it came out). it was amazing. all of the actresses were remarkable, especially penelope cruz, who is somehow even better than usual, working in her native language, country, and with pedro almodovar. i have spent the semester studying his films, and this is my favourite by far. be prepared to cry. i didn't watch it with my mother, but if i had i have a feeling we'd both have be in hysterics throughout the last half.
(for added relevance, cruz's costumes in the film are quite something: cardigans, pencil skirts, both in a variety of patterns, and lots of cleavage.)
