A surprisingly mixed reception met Pedro Almodóvar's latest film when it opened across the country last year.

Surprising because this Penelope Cruz vehicle is the Spanish director's best film since his critically acclaimed All about My Mother (1999).

The film follows the ghost of a dead mother, who returns to her home town to resolve the situations she was unable to fix during her lifetime. Volver is a very good film which should appeal to a much wider audience than just Almodovar's loyal and diehard fans. 5/5
