‘Julieta’

ho00003757After the execrable I’m So Excited, relieved to see writer/director Pedro Almodovar (Talk To Her, All About My Mother) return to his female-centric storytelling. But, sadly, Julieta is far from his best.

Hidden family secrets worm their way to the surface as Julieta (Emma Suarez – The Mosquito Net, Hours of Light) re-evaluates her life following a chance encounter on the Madrid streets. A somewhat uninvolving, emotionally distant mother/absent daughter tale unfolds – loosely based on short stories by Alice Munro.
