SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Pedro Almodovar won the Fipresci critics prize at this year's San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain for his new movie, "Volver."

The movie has already been honored at the Cannes Film Festival for best original screenplay and a best actress award was given jointly to the six actresses in the cast.

The winner of the Fipresci award is selected by 350 critics around the world. Almodovar won the first award in 1999 for "All About My Mother," which also won the best foreign film Oscar.

Penelope Cruz stars in "Volver" as a woman whose mother returns from the dead.
