julieta-3

A film by Pedro Almodóvar

Cast: Adriana Ugarte, Rossy de Palma, Inma Cuesta, Emma Suarez

As she is about to move and go to live in Portugal with Lorenzo, the man she loves, Julieta crosses a street in Madrid, Bea, an old friend of Antía, her daughter, she has not seen for years. She decided to stay in Madrid, and moved in the same building where she once lived. The memories come back as far as  the regrets, as she sets out again in search for….

Julieta is of these beautiful and deeply moving films and  Pedro Almodóvar has the secret. The film portrait a several women gravitating around a single mother who was once a girl. This film is a drama incandescent  where feelings about their life resonate with infinite regret, and has an inability to communicate with loved ones. With flashbacks the director tells a tale of romance passion (the meeting on the train, the man with the black sweater, the tattoo …AJ ) or misleading sincere friendships, jealousies and secret intimate dramas. Each scene has a color of importance, a meaning and a beautiful elegance to it. Emma Suarez shines here and has deliver the role of a life time, she is brilliant as well as well casted. Mother tormented and tenacious, she tells her story here often in voiceover full of doubts and certainties, according to the times of her life. A bitter and bright film that breaks your heart, that ask the question do we have the ability to forgive.
