"Volver," directed by Pedro Almodovar, has received the Best Film of the Year Award from the International Federation of Film Critics. The Fipresci Prize was decided by a vote of about 350 movie critics in more than 60 countries.

Almodovar's "All About My Mother" won the first Fipresci prize in 1999. This year's award was announced late Thursday, September 21 at a ceremony inaugurating the 54th San Sebastian International Film Festival in the northern Basque city.

"Volver" stars Penelope Cruz as a feisty young woman whose mother comes back from the dead to tie up loose ends. Cruz and her five key cast mates shared the actress prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival. The movie also won the Screenplay Honor for Almodovar.
