Story / Synopsis
Volver reunites many of Almodovar’s favourite actresses and some of his favourite themes and I liked it much more than Bad Education, sex Mex or no sex Mex, largely because it combines comedy with melodrama and is much more colourful and real. It’s extremely funny in places, particularly with the ‘Russian’ and Raimunda’s reactions to her. It’s also what would, in the golden age of Hollywood, have been called a ‘woman’s picture’. This is a world of women, buzzing like bees, scrubbing graves, all generations, shapes and sizes, from which men are almost entirely excluded. Raimunda may flirt with customers in her restaurant but her daughter – and disposing of Paco’s body – comes first. In modern-day Madrid's working-class neighborhoods, immigrants from various Spanish provinces live and work together. Among them are three generations of women whose live intertwine.
The Extra 1 is an interview of the director where Audio Language is Spanish, Hardcoded subtitle is Unknown to me and the vobsub is in Turkish. If any member will make a English Subtitle for this Extra 1 then I'll confer 500 Bonus point to him / her.
