Former perv-master Almodovar goes all new man with this latest offering, widely considered to be his most accomplished film yet. After the accidental death of her beloved son, Manuela leaves Madrid for Barcelona, where she plans to look up old friends, exorcise her ghosts, and, just maybe, tell her long-estranged ex about the son he never knew he had. But this involves bring up some painful and unpleasant secrets from the past, and present. Almodovar's characteristically camp humour is still present in healthy doses, but on the whole it's far more sensitive and low-key than his usual fare.
