Volver's poster image


2006 · 2 hrs 1 min

An emotionally charged and deeply human story of togetherness and survival, writer/director Pedro Almodovar's 2006 drama Volver follows a family of resilient women struggling with grief, disappointment, and the power of redemption. The film provides an exploration of unexpected encounters and offbeat humour periodically offsetting its more poignant moments. Raimunda (Penélope Cruz) is trying to provide a better life for her surly daughter Paula after the death of their husband/father, imparting an absent role model while earning money as a hairdresser. Meanwhile, her older sister Sole (Lola Dueñas) is dealing with the reality that her mother Irene (Carmen Maura), thought to be long-dead, is suddenly alive. Through their interconnected lives, a greater understanding and inner strength is revealed. Critics praised Almodovar's ability to tell a timeless story with a personal touch that remained true to the director's signature style. Volver is an intricately crafted and often mysterious drama that reveals truths on themes of love, family, and death.
