Screenwriter Pedro Almodóvar made his iconic directorial debut with a nonlinear drama about the decline of a content producer in which Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz starred. The acclaimed director received an honorary Golden Lion from Venice Film Festival that same year for his life’s work.

The prolific filmmaker could have slowed down from producing any more films because of the long-term health condition, as it is reported that he became ill last year with complications related to the coronavirus. After recovering from a car accident and being under house arrest, he finally finished writing scripts for his next movie project with Cruz. Here’s all the information we have at the moment.

In Janis, a woman in her later years of life, and Ana, a much younger teenage girl, we see two different reactions to their pregnancies. After the two meet in a hospital and bond through their connection with each other, Janis’s unborn child overwhelms Ana’s emotional stability and causes the relationship to deteriorate.

Variety reported that Pedro Almodóvar has said the film is an intense drama about imperfect mothers and their children. The motherhood theme in Almodovar’s film has always been a central one, but with this new film, the filmmaker is focusing on a different aspect of his oeuvre: “The inevitable presence of memory.”
