Volver

It is an impossible choice to pick only one of Pedro Almodovar’s movies, but if there was a gun to my head, I would probably choose this one. Funny, touching, full of life and optimism, it’s an amazing roller coaster of emotions that you have to watch! Penélope Cruz should have won the Oscar for best actress that year (I am sorry Helen Mirren, but it’s true).
