Pedro Almodovar's latest film is based on three short stories from the book Runaway (2004) by Alice Munro. It is Almodovar, I will go and see it. His films range from fantastic to still better than anything else being made at the moment.
So I ended this year's Sydney Film Festival as I began, with a movie about the lives of women, based on three short stories by women writers. Almodovar is a beautiful film maker and his framing of his subjects are like beautiful photographs. I enjoyed the film although I was not completely convinced by the central issue of the breakdown in communication between the characters. I would also like to find the soundtrack as the score was amazing. This is a good Almodovar movie, but not a great one.
