Penelope Cruz has made history for our cinema. For our country. The actress has become the first woman to win the Volpi Cup, the award for best actress in the world. Venice Film Festival, the oldest of the cinematographic competitions. He has done it by beating names that sounded strong, such as Kristen Stewart for Spencer, and he has done it hand in hand with his friend and teacher, Pedro Almodovar, who has given him one of his most complex and round works in Parallel Mothers. An award that the actress, very excited, dedicated to her two mothers, Encarna and Pilar, referring to her mother Encarna Sánchez and Pilar Bardem, who died in July this year.
Almodóvar’s film inaugurated the Official Section to the contest ten days ago, and since then it entered all the pools. Many placed him as a strong candidate for the jackpot of the night, the Golden Lion, but finally it has been Penelope’s masterful work that has won an award that has also been a recognition of Parallel Mothers, since the rules of the contest make it clear that a work that wins the Golden Lion cannot receive another award from the list of honors.
