Berwick Film Society: Julieta

Paying tribute to the 2004 book Runaway by Canadian author Alice Munro, acclaimed Spanish film auteur Pedro Almodóvar has interwoven three of her short stories, emerging with a richly-layered character portrait of a woman, traversing thirty years.

Julieta unravels into an alluring mystery drama in which the mother of the title, putting hurt aside, decides to track down the daughter who walked out of her life twelve years earlier.

Vibrant colours splash the screen, complemented by a jazz-inflected soundtrack as Julieta first rewinds, then advances into an intriguing story of destiny, guilt and obsession. There are hints of Hitchcock here – and it works quite beautifully.
Cast: Emma Suárez, Adriana Ugarte, Rossy de Palma
