English Summary:

Volver (Spanish pronunciation: [bolˈβeɾ], meaning "to go back") is a 2006 Spanish drama film written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar. Headed by actress Penélope Cruz, the film features an ensemble cast also starring Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Blanca Portillo, Yohana Cobo, and Chus Lampreave. Revolving around an eccentric family of women from a wind-swept region south of Madrid, Cruz plays Raimunda, a working-class woman forced to go to great lengths to protect her 14-year-old daughter Paula. To top off the family crisis, her mother Irene comes back from the dead to tie up loose ends.

Raimunda (Penélope Cruz) and Sole (Lola Dueñas) are sisters who grew up in Alcanfor de las Infantas, a small village in La Mancha, but now both live in Madrid. Their parents had died in a fire three years before.

Sole returns for the funeral of her elderly, dementia-stricken Aunt Paula (Chus Lampreave). Aunt Paula's neighbour Agustina (Blanca Portillo) confesses to Sole that she has heard Paula talking to the ghost of their mother Irene (Carmen Maura). Sole encounters the ghost herself, and when she returns to Madrid, she discovers that the ghost has stowed away in the trunk of her car. Sole agrees to let Irene stay with her: Sole operates a hair salon in her apartment, and Irene will assist her. Irene says that she wants to know why Raimunda hates her, and why she herself is afraid to reveal herself to Raimunda.

Meanwhile, Raimunda and her daughter Paula (Yohana Cobo) have a different death to cope with. Paula's father Paco (Antonio de la Torre) attempts to rape her, claiming that he is not really her father, and Paula stabs him in self-defense. Raimunda hides the corpse in the deep-freezer of a nearby restaurant with an absent owner, Emilio (Carlos Blanco). When members of a film crew happen upon the restaurant, Raimunda strikes a deal to cater for them, and finds herself back in the restaurant business.

 

Spanish Summary:

Según las propias palabras de Almodóvar, la película nos habla de «tres generaciones de mujeres [que] sobreviven al viento solano, al fuego, a la locura, a la superstición e incluso a la muerte a base de bondad, mentiras y una vitalidad sin límites».

«Ellas son Raimunda (Penélope Cruz) casada con un obrero en paro y una hija adolescente (Yohana Cobo). Sole (Lola Dueñas), su hermana, se gana la vida como peluquera. Y la madre de ambas (Carmen Maura), muerta en un incendio, junto a su marido. Este personaje se aparece primero a su hermana (Chus Lampreave) y después a Sole, aunque con quien dejó importantes asuntos pendientes fue con Raimunda y con su vecina del pueblo, Agustina (Blanca Portillo)».

«Volver no es una comedia surrealista, aunque en ocasiones lo parezca. Vivos y muertos conviven sin estridencias, provocando situaciones hilarantes o de una emoción intensa y genuina. Es una película sobre la cultura de la muerte en mi Mancha natal. Mis paisanos la viven con una naturalidad admirable. El modo en que los muertos continúan presentes en sus vidas, la riqueza y humanidad de sus ritos hace que los muertos no mueran nunca. Volver destruye los tópicos de la España negra y propone una España tan real como opuesta. Una España blanca, espontánea, divertida, intrépida, solidaria y justa».

 

Turkish Summary:

Film, kadınların taşlarını tek tek temizledikleri bir kasaba mezarlığında başlar. Raimunda (Penélope Cruz) ve kızkardeşi Soledad (Lola Dueñas) bir yangında kaybettikleri anne ve babalarının mezarlarını temizlemektedirler. Kasaba halkı ölülere büyük bir saygı göstermekte ve adeta ölüleriyle birlikte yaşamaktadır.

Yoksul, yaşayabilmek için hafta sonları bile çalışmak zorunda kalan Raimunda (Penélope Cruz), kızı Paula (Yohana Cobo) ve kocası Paco (Antonio de la Torre) ile birlikte yaşarlar. Oldukça saldırgan ve işe yaramaz bir görüntü çizen Paco, işten atıldığı gibi, kızı Paula'ya tecavüz etmeye kalkar ve Paula tarafından öldürülür. Raimunda cesedi ortadan kaldırır. Kız kardeşler akıl ve beden sağlığını iyice yitirmiş olan yaşlı teyzeleri Paula'ya (Chus Lampreave) ziyarete gittikleri günün ertesi günü teyzelerinin öldüğü haberini alırlar. Raimunda cesedi saklamak için çare bulmakla uğraştığı için cenazeye gidemez. Kızkardeşi Sole ise utangaç, tedirgin ve cesaretsizdir. Evini kayıtdışı bir kuaför salonuna çevirmiş ve hayatını bununla kazanmaktadır. Kocası bir süre önce bir müşterisi ile onu aldatarak evi terk etmiştir. Cenazeye giden Sole, cenazede ölmüş annesi Irene'nin (Carmen Maura) hayaleti ile karşılaşır ve onunla konuşmaya başlar. Köyde birçok kişi Irene'nin hayaleti ile karşılaşmış ve ölülerin geri dönmeleri halk tarafından doğal karşılanmaktadır. Irene annesini de yanına alıp geri getirir.
