In this colorful Mildred Pierce-inspired melodrama, TV newscaster Victoria Abril reunites with her torch singer mother Marisa Peredes after 15 years, only to discover husband Miguel Bosé was once her mom’s lover. A lurid murder mystery and multiple cases of mistaken identity ensue, while Sakamoto’s score—with echoes of classic Hollywood melodrama and bolero—proves one of his finest.
