I'm not Pedro Almodovar's biggest fan by any means, but this trailer for his next film, Julieta, impressed me. I love the framing, the close-ups, the palpable sense of that balmy embrace in the Spanish air, the genuine compassion for female relationships. It brought to mind my favourite Almodovar film, All About My Mother. Looking forward to seeing this asap; a Cannes debut is widely tipped (it opens in France on the 18th of May), after which, British audiences will get to see Julieta on the 26th of August.
