Almodovar again tries to tell a story about women, in which we could classificate it as one of its poorest jobs. I consider to be a huge fan of his films, but this left me quite cold and really seem to me to be too artifitial sometimes.Almodovar again tries to tell a story about women, in which we could classificate it as one of its poorest jobs. I consider to be a huge fan of his films, but this left me quite cold and really seem to me to be too artifitial sometimes. Probably, Emma Suarez is one of the few successes of the film. Maybe, we should start to think that the way of filming that Almodovar has, does not get older that well. Expand

“Julieta” is a beautifully directed film by the world acclaimed Pedro Almodovar who with Alice Munro co-wrote the film as well. This is a story of guilt, relationships and the many ways in which those who suffer loss react to it. Ably acted“Julieta” is a beautifully directed film by the world acclaimed Pedro Almodovar who with Alice Munro co-wrote the film as well. This is a story of guilt, relationships and the many ways in which those who suffer loss react to it. Ably acted by Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suarez and Danie Grao, the audience is transported into the world its main character, Julieta, as she attempts to cope with the realities of life and death. I give the film 3 stars for although it may not equal the other great films of Mr. Almodovar, it reaches an extremely high level of accomplishment and gives the audience over 2 hours of extraordinary entertainment. I give the film an 8 and recommend that it be seen while it is still in general distribution. Expand

Despite fine performances, beautiful cinematography and gorgeous locations, these attributes aren't enough to overcome the inherent shortcomings that keep this offering from reaching a level it aspires to but can't possibly attain. In many ways, the film feels too much like a made-for-TV Lifetime movie only with better production values, a rather disappointing effort from a director capable of so much better. Expand

Almodovar is a woman trapped in a man's body and this is irrefutable proof thereof. Pay no attention to the naysayers: He is in FINE form with this gorgeous film and you'll need at least 1 box of tissues. One of the best films I've seen in years. The incomparable Almodovar is BACK!!! Expand
