Pedro Almodovar's triumphant return to female-centric melodrama after 1999''s All About My Mother stars Penelope Cruz as Raimunda, a steadfast, saucy woman who lives in a small Spanish town with her daughter (Yohana Cobo), a despicable husband (Antonio de la Torre), and a large network of confidantes. Almodovar counters the film''s bright color scheme and vibrant characters with elements of tragedy, suspense, and murder, not to mention the living, breathing ghost of Raimunda''s dead mother (Carmen Maura) come to take care of unfinished business. Cruz was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for her lovable performance. In Spanish with optional English subtitles. Pedro Almodovar---Spain---2006---121 mins.
