Broken Embraces


  • I'll do anything for gold ...

Pedro Almodovar's latest vehicle for Cruz has a rather convoluted plot which left critics longing for something simpler. In essence a three-or-four-way romance, it revolves around a beautiful woman who was involved with a film directoer. When he lost his sight in an accident, she switched her attentions to a millionaire. The millionaire however really wants to know what happened between her and the director, so he sets about making a documentary about a film that the two of them are doing, allowing him to spy on them. Meanwhile the director's assistant has her own feelings to deal with ... In Spanish with English subtitles.
