SUMMARY: "With introspection and humor, Oscar-winner Almodóvar (TALK TO HER) invites comparisons with Fellini’s 8½ in this poignantly potent memory-laced tale of artistically depleted film director Salva (Banderas) looking back on a life marked by early promise and thwarted desires. Lively images of Salva’s winsome, madonna-like mother (Cruz) thread through reveries that alternate childhood wonder with erotic awakening. Almodóvar’s central theme of addiction encompasses not only the varied substances with which his fictional stand-in eases his physical and emotional pain, but the lingering obsession with a long-lost love, who comes back into his life from Argentina just as he faces a retrospective of his films with trepidation.
