Broken Embraces (***)

I was so sad after leaving "Broken Embraces" by Almodovar the other day... He is my favorite director and I felt like he didn't really have a story.. He talked about a film director that becomes blind, (although, u think he is faking in the beginning because of how the story is cut)... He talked about a relationship of a gay son with his homophobic father.. But all you see is the son helping out the father...

It felt like he had nothing to say and just put some stories together.

Now, the acting as usual, was great.. Set design was amazing!!!

and.. Even though i was iluded by this movie, it is still a classic Almodovar. For sure worthwhile seeing it.. I wanted to know other people's opinions.

What do you think?

  1. I found it unfocused- but not without soul. There was, as always, Almodovar's passion and love for life, women, love, and sex beneath every line. But there was no through-line, nothing to connect the dots and leave us with anything to think about other than, "why wasn't that as good as I wanted it to be?"
