Just back from the cinema with Isabel. We went to see Volver, Almodóvar’s last film. The story is beautiful and the acting is decent, but a few details did spoil the experience. For instance, Penélope Cruz’s character is supposed to come from La Mancha and consequently she starts the movie talking with a distinctive accent from that region; unfortunately, this accent disappears and reappears through the movie several times. Is this so hard to fix for a director?

In other sequence, Pe’s character sings a song and the voice is so evidently not hers that the dramatism of the moment is completely ruined.

I would expect that a world-famous director like Almodóvar would pay more attention to details like these.
