Broken Embraces (2009)

Pedro Almodóvar directs Penelope Cruz, Lluís Homar and Blanca Portillo in the Spanish drama where a blind movie director remembers his affair with an actress being ‘kept’ by a jealous titan of finance.

A rather staid and unmemorable melodrama. Feels like Almodóvar spinning his wheels. There are some nice shots of torn photos and private moments.
