julieta the latest film from Pedro Almodovar. I love his films because they take on real issues, and also have actors that look like real people both in size and age. julieta, based on a story by Canadian author Alice Munro, takes on the tortuous issue of the relationship between mothers and daughters. The main character, Julieta, is in her 50s and about to leave Madrid and go with her partner to live in Portugal, but a chance encounter with one of her daughter’s friends makes her change her plans. Through a series of flashbacks we find out why Julieta hasn’t seen her daughter for twelve years and learn more about her difficult relationship with her own father. It’s a serious subject, but dealt with by Almodovar’s trademark of beautiful scenery, the women are fabulously dressed and it’s a classy film.
