A happy child. A tormented adult.
19 May 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

We discover an Imaginary Invalid (Molière, 1673) who is afraid of growing old and who tries, more or less deftly, to clean up his past, renewing contact with former acquaintances. I loved the introductory scene with the four women washing clothes at the edge of a river, and the scenes in which Salvador Mallo is a child, with Penélope Cruz. These scenes are tenderly contemplative. Otherwise, the movie drags on excessively. This cinematic autobiography might be summed up to an egocentric work about a sad and lonely man, with an insignificant embarrassment of riches. Then, it's probably reserved for Pedro Almodovar's fans.
