Synopsis

An entertaining fantasy in which Almodovar returns to his roots with themes of the power of motherhood and the blessing of good friends. Starring Penelope Cruz, who has never looked or acted better, as a prickly resourceful woman whose long-held secret about the father of her teenage daughter is revealed only upon the ghostly appearance of her dead mother.

It is very difficult to mesh fantasy with reality but with great charm and a light touch, Almodovar shows exactly how it is done.
