Stars: Penélope Cruz, Carmen Maura, Lola Duenas, Blanca Portillo, Chus Lampreave, Yohana Cobo
Consider that incredibly sexy picture of star Penélope Cruz, seen above, as a nice bonus; all slices of eye candy aside, Pedro Almodóvar's inventive dramedy Volver is, on its own artistic merits, a brilliant piece of quick-witted, experimental cinema.
Mixing hints of magical-realism and the all-out supernatural into the film's entirely humanistic plot, the writer-director, at the top of his game here, mines excellent performances from an ensemble of actresses all completely in tune with Volver's emphasis on mother-daughter relationships.
And, about Ms. Cruz's sexiness, Almodovar very much appreciates her bustiness as much as we do. See Volver's many glorious cleavage shots for proof.
