Recently Watched: Volver

The film is about a Spanish mother that comes back as a ghost to resolve some of her family's drama. Penelope Cruz who plays the daughter of the ghost, gave a really great performance. I haven't seen her in anything but Vicky Christina Barcelona (which she was also good in), but I still always thought of her as Tom Criuses random Spanish I'm going to stop doing that now.

Almodovar has depicted mother/daughter relationships very well. I hear a lot about his films, but I have only seen Bad Education (due to my past mild obsession with Gael Garcia Bernal [see below]), but I'd like to see more.
