Broken Embraces (Los abrazos rotos)

A man writes, lives and loves in darkness. Fourteen years before, he was in a brutal car crash on the island of Lanzarote. In the accident, he not only lost his sight, he also lost Lena, the love of his life. Broken Embraces is shot in the style of a hard-boiled 40s and 50s American film noir.

Director Pedro Almodóvar tells a story of loneliness, intimacy, secrets, infidelity and the difficulty of communication between sexes. Typical of the Spanish director, Almodóvar puts the women in the middle of the action, however, it’s a male correlation that arises from the story.
