MUBI's take

One of Almodóvar’s most acclaimed and beloved films, All About My Mother won the Best Director award in Cannes and an Oscar®! An immaculate maximalist melodrama full of intense emotion, this love letter to actresses is brought to life by a fierce cast of Almodóvar regulars, including Penélope Cruz.
