Penélope Cruz in Zerrissene Umarmungen( Visual )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in German and Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein erblindeter Drehbuchautor erinnert sich an seine große Liebe und die Zeit, als er selbst noch Filme drehte, insbesondere seine letzte, nicht fertig gestellte Komödie. Ein "Film im Film im Film", der virtuos Zeit- und Handlungsebenen verschränkt und vieles in einem ist: Thriller, Telenovela, Melodram und Komödie, hochemotional und kühl durchkomponiert, voller Anspielungen und Bezüge auf Filme, Kunstwerke und das eigene Werk. Das Spiel mit Doppelungen und Identitäten wirkt mitunter überladen und atemlos, wenngleich die wandlungsfähige Hauptdarstellerin dem Ganzen einen magischen Fokus gibt. Trotzdem zählt der Film zum Anrührendsten und Schönsten, was das europäische Kino aktuell zu bieten hat. (www.zweitausendeins.de, 20.9.10)
