Penelope Cruz is a wonderful actress. The Academy Award winner has more brilliance in a tuft of her luxurious hair than most of us have in our whole bodies. She is able to transcend genres at easy – performing evocatively in dramas, chillingly in thrillers, and is able to populate thrillers such as Grimsby and Zoolander 2.
Now she returns in melodrama Ma Ma.
The film premise is simply but could be triumphant and brilliant. It revolves around a woman who is recently diagnosed with cancer. Unsure of what to do with her live, she find solace in a man whose wife was gravely injured in a car accident.
As you shake away the remnants of Bohemian Rhapsody from merely glimpsing at the title (what? Just me?), enjoy the dreamy aesthetics and thoroughly talented Penelope Cruz who always effervesces in her mother tongue. Coming from director Julio Medem, Ma Ma may be a superb movie!
