At the 2006 Cannes Film Festival six of Volver’s female stars, Penélope Cruz and Carmen Maura among them, shared the Best Actress Award for their ensemble playing, and director Almodóvar won Best Screenplay Award. In part this is a ghost story, but it’s much more than that, a rich tale of family trials and triumphs, a film of endless pleasures and surprises.
