That song from Almodovar's 'Broken Embraces'

Intoxicating song which comes at a crucial moment of Almodovar's last film, Broken Embraces, starring Penelope Cruz.

The film itself is standard Almodovar: dark, self-reflexive, profound and hilarious. It is, like all Almodovar films, essentially a soap opera with a plot so effortlessly convoluted and full of secrets that it cannot be summarised. This time, though, it lacks the edge and genuine complexity of some of the Spanish director's earlier work like Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Bad Education and Talk to Her. But it is still unforgettable.
