Set partly in La Mancha and partly in Madrid, Volver is about sisters, Raimunda (Penelope Cruz) and Sole (Lola Dueñas), and their lives after the death of their mother, Irene (Carmen Maura). After their Aunt Paula’s funeral in Alcanfor de las Infantas, Sole discovers her mother in the boot of her car, apparently returned to visit her daughters and to fix things she was unable to whilst alive.  Whilst Sole tries to hide her mother in a spare bedroom, Raimunda and her daughter have problems of their own.

Yes, this film is in Spanish, but watch it with subtitles, it’s amazing and makes me want to backcomb my hair, wear pencil skirts and drink mojitos.  And you can buy it for FIFTY-ONE PENCE from Amazon. Bargain.
