Teaser: Broken Embraces

Hot off her Best Supporting Actress Academy Award, Penelope Cruz can next be seen in Pedro Almodóvar's "Broken Embraces". Pedro Almodóvar has directed such oustanding films as Law of Desire, High Heels, Live Flesh, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, Bad Education, and Volver.

"Broken Embraces" or it's spanish title, "Los Abrazos Rotos," is a 1990's set drama that is described as, "four-way tale of amour-fou, shot in the style of '50s American film noir at its most hard-boiled, with signature Almodóvar themes such as fate, the mystery of creation, guilt, unscrupulous power, the eternal search of fathers for sons, and sons for fathers."

The trailer is short and features absolutely no dialogue, but it definately gets it's point across. The noir-style looks to be heavily featured and the wardrobe is bound to get some notice. Cruz looks goregous as ever and "Broken Embraces" looks like a must see for 2009. The film is set to release March 18th in Spain and will find itself a limited release stateside come November 6th.
