Broken Embraces Teaser Trailer

I've got a confession to make - I've never seen any of Pedro Almodóvar's films. Are they any good? I know that he won an Oscar for Talk to Her in 2002 and Penélope Cruz was nominated for an Oscar for Volver in 2007, but I've just never sat down and watched any of them. However, thanks to RopeofSilicon, we've got an early teaser trailer for his latest film, titled Broken Embraces, which yet again stars Penélope Cruz, and it looks pretty damn good. I just love the classic feel to it and the wonderful Ennio Morricone-like score in this and everything. Maybe I should be looking into Almodóvar's films! Check out the new teaser trailer.

Watch the teaser trailer for Pedro Almodóvar's Broken Embraces:

[flv: 420 180]

Broken Embraces, aka Los Abrazos Rotos, is both written and directed by Oscar winnning Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, of Law of Desire, High Heels, Live Flesh, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Bad Education, and Volver previously. The film is described as a "four-way tale of amour-fou, shot in the style of '50s American film noir at its most hard-boiled, with signature Almodóvar themes such as fate, the mystery of creation, guilt, unscrupulous power, the eternal search of fathers for sons, and sons for fathers." Sony Pictures Classics will bring Broken Embraces to limited theaters starting on November 6th.

  • Cinemassiv
    Yeah, you should see Volver and go back and watch Matador.
  • Rod
    Hey Alex. If you haven't seen any of Almodovar's films, you're missing out tremendously something really good. Volver, The Bad Education, All about my mother...are some that you can start with........ENJOY! You're in for an amazing journey....... I agree with max.....any Almodovar film is a great hype in Hispanic films and are always a must see.... cheers
  • real talk
    the people in this movie cant seem to keep their hands off of penelope cruz's character cant blame em!

    Dishwashing never looked as good as it did when Penelope Cruz was washing them in Volver. But beyond that it was a great flick. I'm excited to watch this new one as well.

    Talk to Her is amazing.

    Almodovar's films are controversy in Spain, and there are a lot of people don't like it (I am spanish). One of his first films is What Have I Done to Deserve This? and it is very interesting. The Bad Education is one of my favorite of Almodovar's films (I don't see all his films).
  • jose
    Rod The women watch Almodovar's films. The succes began with Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
  • Fiona
    You should see High Heels. My favorite Almodovar's movie.
  • This is recent? Man, beween the video compression, and her hair style, it looks like something from the 70's O.o

    I cannot wait! Every Almodovar film I have seen has been amazing and I am sure this will be no exception. Penelope has been so underrated in America but if you see her in any of his films, she is amazing. she should stick to working in Spanish films I think. Looks like another classic.
  • Alex, Shame on you. Definitely see All About My Mother, but just to give you an incentive for my other fave, Talk to Her, all you need to know is there's a silent film-like sequence in which a miniature man goes inside a woman's vagina as if it were a cave. If that's not a gateway for young guys to get into Almodovar, I don't know what else might be.
  • Conrad
    Volver was amazing! you'd like it, Alex
  • Si, I have seen all of Pedro Almodovar's movies and they are fantastic. This one looks promising too. See you in the theater!

    All Almodovar movies have something original and intersting to say. What I can't understand is the fascination with Penelope. She is imensely overrated. She tries to be Sophia Loren of the loud, passionate, Neapolitan flavor, but she does not succeed. It's all over-done; over-acted; the Latin temperament over-heated. I don't even find her beautiful as some claim she is. But it's Almodovar and sure I will see Broken Embraces.
