Broken Embraces trailer online

PenelopeCruz.jpgThe trailer for Broken Embraces is somewhat scarce on explanations and story, and is more of a focus on Penélope Cruz and what the pundits think of her acting.

Okay, that's a bit unfair, there's a lot more to the trailer for the Pedro Almodovar film, but it really is hard to gleam a sense of a story from it, but at least some of the shots look good, particularly those with Cruz in them.

Penélope Cruz stars once again in a Pedro Almodovar film, this one called Broken Embraces (Los abrazos rotos) and has Cruz playing four different characters apparently, and is described as a noir thriller romance.

A famous blind writer called Harry Caine has left behind all evidence of his past life when he had a terrible car crash and lost the love of his life, Lena. Since then Mateo Blanco has been known by his pseudonym, Harry Caine. Forced to look after his manager's son for a short period, the boy begins to probe him about his past life, and he opens up beginning to explain the events that led up to the accident.

What follows is described as a moving and terrible story that really does show off Penélope Cruz's talent to the best.

That may be, but the trailer most definitely does not do that. See what you think.
