This was followed by three films shot in 2000, Terca Vida, Marta y alrededores and Las razones de mis amigos.

She has worked with Pedro Almodóvar on four occasions – Talk to her, Broken Embraces, The Passenger Lovers and Volver, a film for which she was the winner along with her colleagues for the Best Female Performance at the Cannes Film Festival – and with Alejandro Amenábar in Mar adentro the production which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and for which Lola received her first Goya Prize for Best Female Performance in a Lead Role.

Her second Goya would come with the movie Yo, también by Álvaro Pastor and Antonio Naharro. For this film she would also get the Silver Shell for the best actress at the San Sebastian International Festival.
