Julieta

Pedro Almodóvar bounces back with an absorbing saga of a mother and daughter told in an interesting style. A woman feels isolated, powerless, alone and anguished about what has happened in her life. Is any of it her fault? Or is all of it her fault? How do we hold relationships together, or do they fall apart no matter what we do? Highly rewarding dramas still exist; they don’t all go begging for Oscar nominations… just learn to read subtitles and you too can find out how the rest of the world lives.

Julieta Review [Nyff 2016]

The films of Pedro Almodóvar always draw out the oft-melodramatic complexities of everyday existence, especially for the multi-faceted female characters that drive the narratives. In Julieta, Almodóvar crafts perhaps his most straight-forward story, shorn of many of the melodramatic flourishes and plot twists that so often permeate his films, yet nonetheless powerful and provocative.

Based on three short stories by Alice Munro, Julieta opens with Julieta (Emma Suárez), a middle-aged woman living in Madrid and preparing to move to Portugal with her boyfriend Lorenzo (Darío Grandinetti). A chance encounter with Beatriz (Michelle Jenner) results in Julieta learning the location of her estranged daughter Antía (Blanca Parés). Suddenly, Julieta no longer wants to leave Madrid. She breaks it off with Lorenzo and returns to her old apartment, where she begins to compose a long narrative in a series of journals, addressed to her daughter.

The film then moves back in time,

Movie Review – Julieta (2016)

Julieta, 2016.

Directed by Pedro Almodóvar.

Starring Emma Suárez, Adriana Ugarte, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, Michelle Jenner, Darío Grandinetti, Rossy de Palma and Mariam Bachir.

Synopsis:

The film spans 30 years in Julieta’s life from a nostalgic 1985 where everything seems hopeful, to 2015 where her life appears to be beyond repair and she is on the verge of madness.

Decadent and emotionally enveloping, Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar’s latest is a thoughtfully sumptuous portrait detailing the fragility of family, and the viral nature of guilt. Arguably his finest work since 2006’s Volver, the master of melodrama brings humanity and heft to cruel subject matter with Julieta, and has delivered a product which although unmistakable, is also essential.

Adapted from three Alice Munro short stories, this shattered reflection of loss and yearning actually plays out like a twisted suburban thriller; one quilted in mystery and suspense. For every tonal shade of his past repertoire,

[Cannes Review] Julieta

A woman recalls the pivotal moments of her adult life in Julieta, the latest film from Pedro Almodóvar and his fifth to screen in competition here in Cannes. It’s adapted from a series of short stories of Canadian Nobel prize-winning author Alice Munro and marks a return to the female-centric dramas with which the director made his name, having recently tried his hand at musical (I’m So Excited) and psychological horror (The Skin I Live In). It’s charmingly self-aware in its use of kitsch and melodrama — almost to the point of self-parody — and, while small in scope, it’s also one of his lusher and leaner offerings.

We open on blood red silk and yellow titles, a characteristically strong visual language we’ll gorge on for the rest of the movie. We find the titular woman (played here by Emma Suárez) packing up her worldly belongings. We

Daily | Pedro Almodóvar’s Julieta

Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta, based on three short stories by Alice Munro and featuring Emma Suarez, Adriana Ugarte, Daniel Grao, Inma Cuesta, Dario Grandinetti, Michelle Jenner, Pilar Castro, Nathalie Poza, Susi Sanchez, Joaquin Notario, Priscilla Delgado, Blanca Pares, Ariadna Martin and Rossy de Palma, opens in Spain today, and we're collecting the first round of reviews in English. For Variety's Peter Debruge, "While Julieta represents a welcome return to the female-centric storytelling that has earned Almodóvar his greatest acclaim, it is far from this reformed renegade’s strongest or most entertaining work. Instead, following the high-altitude frivolity of I’m So Excited, the director’s relatively tame 20th feature finds him once again adopting a serious (read, 'respectable') attitude, eschewing comedy and high-camp melodrama in favor of plain old mellow drama." » - David Hudson

Watch the new international trailer for Pedro Almodovar’s Julieta

Pedro Almodovar is a unique talent in modern cinema who has seemed to, almost effortlessly, continued to bridge the gap between Hollywood and inventive Spanish film-making with movies such as Talk to Her, Volver and The Skin I Live in, to name but a few.

Today we’ve got the first official English-language trailer for Julieta, which Almodovar writes and directs. Julieta is a teacher of fifty five, who decides to write a long letter to her daughter, Antía, to try and explain all the things she has kept secret from her over the last 30 years but there’s an early twist because she doesn’t know where to post the letter. Her daughter abandoned her when she was eighteen and Julieta hasn’t heard from her in the past twelve years.

Silencio (2016): Sony Pictures Classics Acquires Pedro Almodóvar’s Latest

  • Film-Book
Sony Pictures Classics Acquires Rights to Pedro Almodóvar’s Latest Film Silencio. The North American rights to Pedro Almodóvar‘s latest film, Silencio (2016), have been purchased by Sony Pictures Classics. Silencio‘s plot synopsis: “Julieta’s life in 2015 finds her on the verge of madness; 30 years earlier, we see a more prosperous time in her life.”

The plot synopsis for Silencio doesn’t reveal much – or rather, all we need to know – about Pedro Almodóvar’s latest film. As with most of his work, it’s best to know next to nothing before sitting down to feast your eyes on it. It’s a much more rewarding experience, I find, and I’d probably recommend his films to anyone that doesn’t mind learning Spanish or reading a few subtitles. The last Almodóvar film I experienced without prior knowledge regarding its story was The Skin I Live In (2011) – and it was an absolute pleasure.

Almodóvar’s 20th Feature, 'Silencio,' Goes to Sony Pictures Classics

Almodóvar’s 20th Feature, 'Silencio,' Goes to Sony Pictures Classics
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North American distribution rights to Pedro Almodóvar’s forthcoming "Silencio," the director's 20th feature and his tenth collaboration with Spc. The film, which stars Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suárez, Daniel Grao, Dario Grandinetti, Inma Cuesta, Michelle Jenner, and recent Cannes juror Rossy de Palma, follows its protagonist Julieta (Ugarte and Suárez) from 1985 to the present, as she deals with the disappearance of her daughter and "struggles to survive on the verge of madness." As the Spanish auteur told Variety in January, the "hard-hitting drama" once again finds him working within "the cinema of women, of great female protagonists," though the material was not quite suited to Almodóvar stalwarts like Penelope Cruz or Antonio Banderas—thus the cast of relative unknowns. "'Silencio' is about destiny, guilt and the unfathomable mystery that leads some people to abandon...
