Pedro Almodóvar looks back to his homeland in his seventeenth film where, he explains, 'I'm back on my roots and my mother's story, always based on my life, my memories and my family.' Carmen Maura returns to work with Almodóvar for the first time in several years, as the mother of Penélope Cruz and Lola Dueñas. In Almodovar's own words, 'Maura's character is a modern woman and a good mother, but she is desperately in love with a man who is far from being a saint. After her death, she returns to town for working out things she could not settle while being alive'.
