Decided to watch this movie on the Council, she would unlikely I decided, because I am not a fan of neither Cruz, no Almodovar. I must admit that already thirty minutes of the film I began to regret the time spent on viewing this film, but watch decided: the Pedro not know?

I do not know anyone, but my story is not seem confusing and intriguing, just wound too, not in a very good sense of the word. Personally, I became absolutely clear with all the moment when the supposedly dead, departed mother "appeared." I know that love for the mother of one of the sisters makes her believe their mother is back with the world. Such questions with side loving daughter like: "What do you wish I do?" or fragments of phrases"... with life","... while you were alive" I was a little amused. Other, it is raimunda (Cruz), not believed it to the latter, while my own eyes have not saw. Where it is possible to make certain conclusions.

Almodovar seems to be trying to confuse the audience, but my opinion, only aggravates the situation. I got a look at three the main focus of the story, and which have a common channel that drains. I have in mind the theme of the relationship as the strange female. I would say, the relationship between different generations of women. Even this fuss with the body of the husband of the heroine a bit annoying...

The only thing that pleased the film — this is a game of actors, or rather Actresses in features Penelope Cruz. Without doubt, played emotionally and bright.

In conclusion, I would say that film the fan, which I are to unfortunately, or may be joy. On a cold winter night, I would like before going to sleep, to silently go to sleep. But any criticism for film not only for him — it is well — her absence and indifference. So that, "the Return" I no wonder look, the film does not leave me indifferent.

In me is clearly trying to develop a sense of beauty and plant the work of Spanish film Director Pedro Almodovar constantly recommending it to the movies. It has been the third attempt. In I particularly do not resist, because its Muse Penelope Cruz I really like it too. She is not only beautiful, but and clever. Always with pleasure to look at her transformation in the movie.

After watching this film, you can assure this is the best role of Penelope from all works, which I had a chance to watch. But it I will write below. First I want to praise Pedro, which has created another film with its zest. When I wrote a review on his Broken embraces, the mentioned genre cocktail. Here again this method, but a little differently. If there is the change of genres was gradual, then then they are closely intertwined with each other. According to the story is pure drama, but Almodovar it shows through the prism of humor.

It would seem that the theme of incest is definitely not suitable for a joke, but he did make the film easy enough, but not empty. There are no black humor or slapstick. All very organic look together. It is noteworthy that the film found only a few men, forming the background. All main characters — this women, each of which demonstrates their best qualities. Well, who after this film continues to believe the better half the weaker sex?

Of course, I liked Raymond. I have always admired strong, independent, confident in itself woman. Penelope Cruz just perfectly revealed the character. Sometimes it the heroine was vulgar and rude, but still it's a woman, which the peculiar feelings and weakness. Life made her to grow up quickly and become strong, but couldn't break. And it looks very impressive looking in the frame. A real diva, next to which all others pale. It is not surprising that this charismatic woman has conquered Pedro. Was I Director, also would like it to work.

Also liked Lola Dueñas, who played the sister Raimondi. Especially in the scenes when he was hiding the Ghost of his mother and sounded threshold, so that she heard. Her rose in "the Sea inside" was also one of the vivid characters. Blanca Portillo played well Augustine. Perhaps no one else I will select it. By the way, all three Actresses starred in "Open arms". But the film does have one drawback. Humor — it's good, but prevents take this film seriously. Therefore this evaluation. But I still liked it.

And how you can guess the phrase from would extend much further than the linen. Here and family problems and skeletons in the closet, and much more. And sometimes it has such roots or takes a turn that you wonder. You can tell ordinary family: Lenasia and drinking husband, wife, forced to work for several jobs and younger daughter. And starts the story of how a normal household, but then turn on the territory of the mysterious and mystical, then detective and unlikely not philosophical in the end. Uncover all the twists and turns from not necessary.

Curiously, the whole batch looks to be surprisingly easy. In stock laughter, and tears, and love, sometimes quite sincere and natural. Affects flow with special Spanish temperament, with anguish, with a cry of the soul and true emotions. In same time the admixture of Latin American soap operas and something parody-trash, when the hard, frightening and campaign the horror of normal people moments cause laughter or tears. At the film is permeated with sincere feelings, true love, I can even say Holy: parent to my children and love of children to the mother.

The remarkable fact or fact that male characters strongly enough, and the plot-and application real, pop up the memories, just one. Naturally "sweat" women. And "rap that need. What is quite well known in the film world at the other films in including Pedro Almodovar, Penelope Cruz and Carmen Maura, that much less famous Lola Dueñas, Johan Cobo, Blanca Portillo play as a minimum of dignity, natural and sincerely, no wonder the women staff had been awarded the Cannes film festival.

In General and General work my opinion, kinda movie. Curious and from the point of view works Director: there is no evening part orientation, and normal characters in principle, entirely ordinary and in the or another adequate. And from the point of view of presentation, the kind with little folds at the parts laughter and tears in creepy moments. And the material — it seemed an ordinary story, but which the many events is a mystery — one of fundamental plot-elements. This add a sense of mysticism and even a little scary, but tales the most fascinated and intriguing. But as they say, fairy tales don't happen, only illusions and real life. And for them psychological problems, sincere feelings and real drama. Slips the moment "crime and punishment", all the secret ever becomes clear, there will be a reckoning, but accept circumstances no one calls. It is important that "dirty linen should be washed at home."
