Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar is known for his character-driven films featuring irreverent humour, strong-willed women and unconventional relationships, shot in bold, primary colours. All these elements come together in this uplifting, Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winning tale of Manuela, a mother who decides to relocate to Barcelona after her son's sudden death. There she hopes to re-connect with her ex-husband, but also finds herself drawn into an intriguing circle of unusual people, some of whom are dealing with grief of their own.
