Hi Richard, i couldn´t resist to comment your post before going to Hervas:yes ´Volver´is an autobiographical film,a back to his roots,but in Almodovar´s peculiar style...you know he loves being different.( i Have a wonderful picture of him for you).
Well, the films references you can get in ´Volver´remind italian films of the 50ies,and their great actresses, maggiorattes, Sofia Loren ,Claudia Cardinale and overall Anna Magnani in ´Bellissima´by Visconti.
I hope you enjoy them a lot.
See you soon
