WATCH: Penelope Cruz Enjoys Naked Bathtub Romp With Co-Star In New 'Twice Born' Trailer

But new movie takes a sadder turn

By On

Penelope Cruz's new movie 'Twice Born' will evidently involve some pretty steamy love scenes with co-star Emile Hirsch - as shown by the international trailer for the new film, released in the UK in 2013.

Yet the sexy scenes have a sad and moving backdrop, as Penelope's character is a single mother who returns to Sarajevo to relieve her experiences 16 years after they were forced to flee due to conflict and her son's father's death in battle.

Upon her return, Penelope hooked up with her ex, resulting in a passionate fling against the backdrop of a city recovering from the ravages of the Balkan war.

Based on the novel by Margaret Mazzantini, the Italian film premiered at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival and has already been released in Italian.
