Almodóvar's 'Julieta' Gets a Trailer

Manuel here. A new Pedro Almodóvar film is always cause for celebration. Yes, even when his last one (I'm So Excited) left many of us cold. Initially titled Silencio, the film is now called Julieta, making it only the second time he's named a film after its heroine. Let's hope Julieta makes for a more pleasant and engaging character than Kika, though.

The trailer is wonderfully oblique, with very little dialogue, so those of you who would otherwise need English subtitles can still bask in the visual sumptuousness of Jean-Claude Larrieu's photography. The D.P. is one of many newcomers to the Almodóvar family: both of his leading ladies, Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte (sharing the title role) are making their Almodrama debuts. But don't worry, actress Rossy de Palma and composer Alberto Iglesias are also onboard, giving Julieta the feel of vintage Pedro. Indeed, the visuals and what little we know of the plot — a chronicle of a woman's life from 1985 to 2015, with some unspoken secrets ready to be divulged — suggest a Volver-type melodrama which is as great a reference point as we could hope for.

We won't do a full on Yes/No/Maybe So because we're obviously a full on YES, but you can check out the trailer below and let us know how excited you are about Pedro's 20th feature which premieres in April in Spain, and August (!!) in the UK, suggesting we're not bound to get it Stateside until the Fall.

A definitve YES! I loved the premise, the music and what appear to be good performances. In addition to Rosy Perez there's Argentine actor Darío Grandinetti, from Talk to Her.
PS: Our Argentine fetish actor, Ricardo Darín -often mentioned by Nat- just won the Goya award (Spain's Oscar) for Best Actor in Truman.

Can't wait. Yeah looks to be in the Volver vein which is great news.

I really like his sensibility, men and women are treated as equally interesting, and his films never bore me. I would like to buy a dvd boxed set of his best films.

Very excited for this! I had no idea Pedro had a new movie coming out this year.

I'm not convinced at all but Almodóvar's trailers are always the worst.
