Since the 1980s, the filmmaker has been giving audiences a tragicomic view of Spanish life the world had never seen before. His new release "Broken Embraces" has all of the hallmarks of his greatest films: a complex structure, an underlying mystery, and Penelope Cruz. It tells the story of a movie director who has lost his sight, and it reveals Almodóvar's own vision of cinema's meaning.
