Volver??? Penelope Cruz??? Why don't you just ask me to watch season one of Top Chef?!

NIGHTDREAMER

Oh come on!!! We are talking about one of the most embracing last year's performance, served with the sexiest appearance and signed by the hand of a man, whose name is a school. Have you even watched that film? *new debate arises*

Shane Smith

There's no doubt it's a beautiful film, and Pedro managed to squeeze an exquisite performance out of Penelope, who is normally so busy being skinny and lovely and impressed with herself that she never gets around to acting. This includes her performance in Todo sobre mi madre, so there must be another variable here besides Almodovar - maybe it was the butt prosthesis?
As wonderful as Penelope is in this role, the real joys of the movie are Carmen Maura and Blanca Portillo, who steal the show with stellar supporting performances (par for the course with Almodovar), and Estrella Morente, who provides Penelope's singing voice.
