Volver (to return) is a Spanish movie written and directed by the famous film director Pedro Almodóvar in 2006. The film won two major awards: Best Actress (Penélope Cruz) and Best Screenplay at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.. The film is about Raimunda (Penélope Cruz), who lives in Madrid with her daughter and unemployed husband. Raimunda’s sister, who works as a hairdresser, is separated from her husband. Both sisters lost their parents in a fire many years ago. Their aunt still lives in the village and continues to speak about her sister—mother of the two sisters as if she were still alive. When the aunt dies, the situation changes and the past “returns” (“volver”) in a twist of mystery. Volver is a thought-provoking film that tells a complex, funny, touching and supernatural story with fantastic acting team. Two thumbs up!!
