“Love is an act of endless forgiveness” – Peter Ustinov
Volver, our March movie is all about the complicated emotional bonds among family members. “It is a chronicle, mostly, of tragedy and horror, rendered in bright, happy colors.”
To relate the details of the narrative — death, cancer, betrayal, parental abandonment, more death — would create an impression of dreariness and woe. But nothing could be further from the spirit of “Volver,” which is buoyant without being flip, and consoling without ever becoming maudlin. Mr. Almodóvar acknowledges misfortune — and takes it seriously — from a perspective that is essentially comic. It draws you in, invites you to linger and makes you eager to return. It offers something better than realism. “. A.O. Scott, NY Times
