Penelope Cruz At Cannes Film Festival

Penelope Cruz came to the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of her brand new movie 'Broken Embraces'. She shot 'Broken Embraces' with Pedro Almodovar at the same time as making 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' with Woody Allen.

Asked to compare working with Almodovar and Allen, the actress said: "They could not be more different. With Pedro we always rehearse for a long time before. Woody doesn't like to rehearse. He really likes everybody to improvise. It's really a very different way of approaching things".

The picture, Almodovar's fourth collaboration with Cruz, recalls 'films noirs', classic comedies and screen sirens of the past. Cruz plays Lena, a secretary who ends up in a relationship with her wealthy boss Ernesto.
