Broken Embraces

A blind scriptwriter is visited by a figure from his past – from 14 years before, when he wasn’t blind and directed his movies too – and is compelled to face up to some unfinished business. This typically elliptical Almodóvar  tale doesn’t reach the emotional heights of his best work but it does feature Penèlope Cruz, and you can’t ask for much more than that. 7/10
