BRO­KEN EM­BRACES/ LOS ABRA­ZOS RO­TOS Di­rected by Pe­dro Almod­ó­var. Star­ring Pené­lope Cruz, Lluís

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Filmlistings -

Ho­mar, José Luis Gómez, Blanca Por­tillo, Lola Due­nas Zip­ping be­tween present and past, Almod­ó­var’s lat­est de­tails the com­plex, os­cil­lat­ing re­la­tions that con­nect a blind film-maker, an el­derly plu­to­crat, that old man’s son and a clas­sic Almod­ó­var­ian siren (an elec­tric Cruz). Very much a movie about movies,

Bro­ken Em­braces may dis­ap­point those looking for the ou­tra­geous camp of the di­rec­tor’s early films. But its in­ter-tex­tual twists and turns re­ward close at­ten­tion and its de­li­cious vi­su­als of­fer end­less plea­sures. 15A cert, lim release, 129 min DC
