  • Suárez gives a searing performance in the lead role, her grief overwhelming her to the point where she physically wears it on her body.

  • Almodóvar makes a game effort to replicate Munro's complex, nonchronological storytelling, though the three tales don't hang together as well as one might hope.

    Feb 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Julieta" is a paean to longing, regret and the often painful experience of being human.

    Jan 26, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Julieta" is filled with Almodóvar's usual attention to vivid color (a turquoise turtleneck worn by young Julieta seems to add notes to the film's moody musical score), and to the ways women talk to each other.

    Jan 25, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Pedro Almodóvar's latest isn't his strongest, but his vibrant, vivid world of women is always a great place to be.

  • The moral of the story is clear: watch out for morals. They corrode the aforementioned generosity and understanding, leaving us lonely and bereft.

    I don't know what is so revelatory about what Julieta wants to tell her daughter, all I know for sure is that this corny soap opera feels more like a cheap excuse for Almodóvar to tell whatever comes to his mind even if he doesn't really seem to have anything to say.

    Sophisticated but schmaltzy and formulaic. There is no emotional payoff for our investment in the characters.
