All About My Mother

  • Dir: Pedro Almodóvar

  • Spain/France, 1999, 101 minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Cecilia Roth, Marisa Paredes, Penélope Cruz, Candela Peña

A transfixing tragicomedy that sees Almodóvar at his peak. Traumatized by the sudden death of her son, a single mother searches for her former lover in Barcelona, where she reluctantly becomes the hub of a makeshift matriarchal community that includes a trans-hustler, a lesbian actress and a nun who is impregnated by her boy’s father – now a transvestite. The world of acting in A Streetcar Named Desire weaves life and art into a rich tapestry of love, companionship and loss, in a stylized beauty with profound empathy.
