After the jump, watch the trailer for Pedro Almodóvar’s (Volver, Talk to Her) next film, Los Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces).

Broken Embraces is described as a four-way tale of amour-fou [crazy love, basically], shot in the style of ’50s American film noir at its most hard-boiled, and will mix references to works like Nicholas Ray’s “In a Lonely Place” and Vincente Minnelli’s “The Bad and the Beautiful,” with signature Almodóvar themes such as Fate, the mystery of creation, guilt, unscrupulous power, the eternal search of fathers for sons, and sons for fathers.

In other news, Zac Efron and Jonathan Rhys Meyers have just signed on for the sequel, Los Abrazos Jotos.  (That’s right, I can make gay jokes in multiple languages.  Call me ladies.)
