  • Movie Reviews Simbasible 2015-05-16 06:43:30 With outstanding character development, excellent direction, deft pacing and a thematically rich, original and always entertaining and involving plot, All About My Mother is a fantastic film which has its minor flaws including a bit too fast paced approach and at times a bit soapy nature, but it is otherwise a terrific movie with its fair share of likable and sympathetic characters, excellent tone ranging from serious to funny, wonderful themes superbly explored, authentic story, great influences and it is all around an engaging, smart and incredibly well acted movie and a standout work from the director.

    So I just watched a Spanish trailer for this movie, but English being my first language, didn't understand it too well. So now, after watching the English trailer I... still have no idea what it's about.

    To me this film marked the turning point in Almodovar career, kind of going away from screwball almost transgressive films and moving towards more serious dramas that resist the urge to be too overtly overdramatic. I think I like films that treat melodramatic material with a more detached view anyway. Like one of my favorite films "In The Family" bitly. com/ G GQ o 0V

    @szymi120 soy español y no creo que en españa haya más transexuales que en otros paises, lo que pasa es que a Almodóvar le gusta el tema gay. saludos ;)
