Director Pedro Almodóvar has devoted many of his films to strong female characters. Underneath his signature bold colors, though, his latest feature feels strangely shallow.

Julieta is a must-see drama, well worth that effort to read subtitles
April 3, 2019
Julieta is emotionally resonant yet far from this auteur's best - the ingredients are all there, you'll just wish they were a little less undercooked.
February 12, 2019
This is the most Almodóvar film that could have been made in recent years. [Full Review in Spanish]

Is this a new direction for Pedro Almodóvar, who has made excess the hallmark of his long career?

Julieta is paced quite well -- with Almodóvar slowly putting the pieces to this puzzle together. Even when the story sometimes veers a little too much into soap opera territory, Suarez's earnest performance pulls it all back together.
October 5, 2018
[Almodóvar] continues to be a leading figure in telling women's stories, and pulls this one off with just enough majesty to keep you in its sway.

Exploding off the screen in a blast of colour and compassion, Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta is one of 2016's cinematic treasures.
August 21, 2018
Compared to Almodóvar's grand masterpieces, his latest might seem quaint. But Julieta is a subtle force of nature, elementally connected with its lead character and her battle to regain personal and familial balance.

Almodvar plants a foot on each side of the gap between the two [styles], which is fine, but the film, like Julieta herself, seems lost on the road.
April 23, 2018
[An] increasingly rare cinema experience - a film that excites the senses, calms the heart, and stays with you for a long time afterwards. One to savour.

Pedro Almodvar rebounds after a series of disappointments with Julieta, which reminds us of the Spanish writer-director's greatness.
December 27, 2017
As usual, Almodvar enjoys toying with dynamics of feminine relationships, friends and foes alike. Deceptions aren't dead ends but doorways to other emotional twists.
December 21, 2017
For Almodovar fans, this will be a sumptuous return to the reds and pinks of his cinema.

Julieta strikes at a part of womanhood that's universal in scope, but definitely carries more weight in societies such as ours where gender roles are alive and well.
December 19, 2017
Its examination of a woman reconciling the joys, pains, regrets and fears of her life resolves in a manner that is satisfying to the narrative, but which viewers might feel lacks an emotional catharsis.
October 19, 2017
There's an undeniable emotional intensity to what eventually becomes an exploration of guilt, but it's also overwritten.
October 12, 2017
... it makes up in long-term resonance what it lacks in immediate closure.
September 12, 2017
With a subtle and deft touch, Julieta illustrates how the senses can define character and memory.
