All About My Mother (Todo sobre mi madre) is a 1999 Spanish film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar, and starring Cecilia Roth, Marisa Paredes, Antonia San Juan, Penélope Cruz and Candela Peña.
"Following the tragic death of her beloved son, Manuela goes to Barcelona in search of his father, But before she can exorcise her guilt she gets caught up in the lives of three women: Agrado, a long-lost transvestite friend, Rosa, a young nun in search of love and Huma Rojo, the famous actress that Manuelas son so admired. As Manuelas life begins to have meaning once more, her sons father returns and the journey of discovery and forgiveness comes full circle.
All About My Mother is a passionate hymn to the strength and spirit of women; a kaleidoscopic drama embracing motherhood, love and desire; a homage to the great Hollywood movies".
The film was a commercial and critical success internationally, winning the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in addition to the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and the BAFTA Awards for Best Film Not in the English Language and Best Direction (Almodóvar).
