Broken Embraces (2009) Movie Review

The newest film from acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar, Broken Embraces, starring Penelope Cruz and Lluis Homar, delivers visually, but falls short of the mastery of story present in Almodovar’s best films (i.e. Talk to Her).  The film is about a famous film director, Mateo Blanco (AKA Harry Caine), who in a car accident loses both his sight and the woman he loves (Cruz), and discovers new ways to channel his talent.  As the story twists and turns new information is revealed about the cause of the accident including the involvement of certain characters closest to him.
