Told in flashback over 30 years of guilt and grief, this tender melodrama based on three Alice Munro short stories is Pedro Almodóvar’s best film in a decade. A woman faces the painful mystery of her long alienation from her daughter. But this is only the germ of a drama that grows steadily richer, more resonant and complex as the filmmaker elaborates it.

Having been swept along by Almodóvar’s vision, I felt that silence deserved to be broken by tumultuous applause.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer

Almodóvar’s 20th feature and his best, in my view, since Volver.” – Godfrey Cheshire, rogerebert.com
