“This is an especially personal work, anchored by the director’s on-off muse Antonio Banderas in perhaps his greatest performance”~The Film Stage

Aroview: A more restrained, but no less pretty and witty outing for septuagenarian director Pedro Almodóvar, which narrates evocative vignettes from the life of a fictional aging film director, reflecting on his past as he battles chronic illness and writer's block. A beautifully self-reflexive celebration of the art of film making.
