Synopsis: VOLVER is a meeting of “Mildred Pierce” and “Arsenic and Old Lace”, combined with the surrealistic naturalism of my fourth film, “¿Qué he hecho yo para merecer esto!!” (“What have I done to Deserve This?”), that is, Madrid and its lively working-class neighbourhoods, where the immigrants from the various Spanish provinces share dreams, lives and fortune with a multitude of ethnic groups and other races. At the heart of this social framework, three generations of women survive wind, fire and even death, thanks to goodness, audacity and a limitless vitality.

From paedophile priests to psychotic transsexuals, Spain’s most outrageous director has tackled ever more raucous themes as he captured the dark underbelly of his country. Now, in the highly acclaimed Volver, Pedro Almodovar confronts the one topic that had eluded him – death. But, asks Peter Conrad, why does Penelope Cruz wear that prosthetic bum?

Okay. One obvious question. “Volver” means “coming back”, and it’s for you also a coming back to working with Pedro Almodóvar. Was that…? How was the feeling?

Interviewer: Better to whisper because I understand a little bit, but not too much.
Traductora: La señora entiende un poco de español pero no demasiado. Así que me ha pedido que cuando tú le hables yo le traduzca al inglés.

Pedro Almodóvar: Entonces te hablo un poco más corto, con frases más cortas.

Interviewer: “Volver” means “coming back”, and it was also you coming back, or you and Almodóvar coming back together. How was the feeling?

Carmen Maura: The feeling for this… Ah, bueno, ¿lo que siento con la palabra volver? Yo creo que Pedro no ha puesto “volver” a la película porque yo vuelva con él, sino porque vuelve el fantasma y porque es el argumento. Pero para mí volver con él ha sido una enorme satisfacción y ha sido muy, muy, muy divertido encontrar que después de 17 años, “17 years”, las cosas entre nosotros, como actriz y como director, son iguales. A él le he encontrado muy diferente como persona, pero como director conmigo están exactamente igual.
