This teaser of Pedro Almodóvar’s Los Abrazos Rotos (The Broken Embraces) makes me think that it may end up being one of the year’s best films. Composed of short scenes of Penelope Cruz embracing a variety of men in a variety of ways, the brightly colored wardrobe make it look like it could take place in the sixties, but feels modern. The title hints that there is something missing in these embraces, and behind there is a wall consisting of a collage of torn photos. One of my favorite trailers in a while.
Almodovar’s Hable Con Ella is in my opinion one of the best films of this decade, and though I wasn’t as much a fan of Volver and La Mala Educación, this film looks like it might be a truly fully realized work. It’s been talked about as a possible Cannes contender, but it will be released in Spain on the 18 of March.
