Internationally acclaimed writer/director Pedro Almodóvar (2003 Oscar® winner, Best Screen¬play, Talk to Her; Bad Education, The Flower of my Secret) delivers his finest film yet, a poignant masterpiece of unconditional love, survival and redemption. Manuela (Cecilia Roth) is the perfect mother. A hard-working nurse, she's built a comfortable life for herself and her teenage son, an aspiring writer. But when tragedy strikes and her beloved only child is killed in a car accident, her world crumbles.

A woman's son dies, while trying to get an autograph from a great actress, leaving his mother bereft, and trying to start a new life. I won't give away any details, but her journey is both funny and tragic, and leads to some terrifically unexpected and sometimes ironic places. Full of odd and wonderful characters, and some very strong acting. A bit cute or 'forced' in a few moments, but overall a moving, special and wonderful film. If you don't know Almodovar's work, this is an excellent place to start.
Almodovar makes an asset of an ensemble cast. We get to know each actress intimately as the camera lovingly spotlights her. No other film director has this rapport with female characters.

These are his three best movies, and they are on offer for less than the price of many single DVD. Unbeatable quality. Unbeatable value.
avec en toile de fond le milieu LGBT. On se laisse prendre.
Un des rares à savoir mettre en valeur tout le talent de ses acteurs
C'est pas du 4K mais on s'en tape
Quelle bande son!
The story is interesting, excellent set up in spanich major cities, superb acting...There are not many movies I want to see for the second or third time; I can watch this movie many times.
Loin de se borner aux conventions et au politiquement correcte, le grand réalisateur espagnol nous plonge dans la société, la vie et ses déboires. Chaque personnage est poignant, plein d'humanisme, avec ses malheurs, ses doutes, ces joies. Ce film décrit un long chemin, celui de la quête de soi, un appel à la tolérance. Il met en lumière la différence, la maladie la souffrance à travers le sida, l'homosexualité, la prostitution, la perte d'un être cher.
Une bouffée d'espoir dans la noirceur de ce quotidien.
