Volver

From a distance, Penelope Cruz’s “Volver” appears to be a foreign chick flick -- lots of female bonding and few (mostly evil) male characters -- but director Pedro Almodovar skillfully tip-toes through various genres along the way. Part black comedy, a bit of a ghost story and not quite all of the above. Can’t think of a recent American film that went a similar route.
