"All About My Mother"
Directed by Pedro Almodovar
Pedro Almodovar's moving
and funny tribute to women, the men who want to be women and the glories
of melodrama was an audience and critics' favorite around the world. The
Academy Awards, the Chicago Film Critics Association, the Los Angeles Film
Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Circle and the National
Board of Review all proclaimed it the Best Foreign Language Film of 1999.
Cecilia Roth, Antonia San Juan, Marisa Paredes and Penelope Cruz all give
exceptional performances in this unique tale of a mother and the
friendships she makes as she looks for her former lover after their son is
killed. "It's the crossover moment in the career of a born
four-hankie storyteller of ever-increasing stature" (Janet Maslin, New
York Times). Spanish with English subtitles.
