strange mixture of a film from senor Aldomovar.
- Broken Embraces review by mb
A bizarre mix of tone, and theme, and plot. Not at all as impressive as all the other films from the same director.
Laughably melodramatic in places.
There are about 5-6 plots going on when any good film would just need about 3. Theres alot of unconvincing femme fatal , a bit hitchcock and some 'clever clever' flashback to a film shoot, being filmed as a documentary.
I wonder if the scene where Harry Caine and the young man invent a ridiculous vampires plot is a depiction of how this film came about.
Penelope Cruz does alright, as usual, but deserves better.
Also about 30 minutes too long.
