Product Description

Quelques mois après s'être trouvés côte à côte lors d'une pièce de théâtre, deux hommes, Benigno et Marco, se retrouvent dans une clinique privée où travaille Benigno. Une jeune femme torero, Lydia, petite amie de Marco, a été renversée par un taureau et est tombée dans le coma. Benigno s'occupe quant à lui d'une autre femme dans le coma, Alicia, une jeune danseuse. Le temps retenu entre les murs de cette clinique se chargera d'emmener les quatre personnages dans des directions inattendues… Parle avec elle est une histoire d'amitié et d'amour, de solitude et d'affection. Les acteurs sont excellents, les dialogues brillants, et la photo particulièrement soignée, comme c'est souvent le cas avec Almodovar qui, détail intéressant, avait originellement écrit la séquence en noir et blanc muet afin d'en faire un long métrage. C'est donc les yeux fermés que vous pourrez acquérir cet émouvant DVD, une réussite de plus au palmarès de l'extravagant espagnol. --David Rault!

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling and tragic masterpiece July 14 2004
Format:DVD
"Hable con Ella", as they say in Spain, follows the tragic paths of four people: Marco and Benigno, Lydia and Alicia. Marco falls in love with Lydia, a female bullfighter, who is gored by a bull. Benigno becomes obsessed with a dancer, Alicia, whom he can see from his apartment window practising in a studio. A car knocks Alicia down and Benigno becomes her nurse. Both women slip into a coma and it is in the hospital that the two men meet. Without giving too much of the plot away, they both lose the woman in their lives, but they find friendship with one another. This is the bare bones of the story. As with most of Almodovar's films, there are subtle depths that require repeated viewing to appreciate them fully. Almodavar deftly weaves the separate strands of the complex relationship of the four leading characters into a tightly focused and compelling piece of story-telling. Sad and uplifting, ironic and sympathetic, touching and unsentimental, this is a wonderful film. The acting is first-rate; Alberto Iglesias' score is enchanting, and Javier Aguirresarobe's cinematography is easy on the eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almodovar's continuing quality June 10 2004
Format:DVD
Benigno (Javier Camara) is a nurse who takes care of former dancing student Alicia (Leonor Watling), who is in a coma. He first sees Marco at a ballet, crying at a particularly ineffable part of the odd proceedings. They finally meet at the hospital, where Marco has come to visit his girlfriend Lydia, a famous matador who was gored by a bull and is also comatose. The two men share the stories of their women and, although they feel differently about the abilities of the women to understand being spoken to, remain friends -- even through an intense discovery that takes the film in another direction.
Considering that the women's portraits are on the DVD cover, Talk to Her is really about the men and their relationship. The focus is primarily on Benigno and his growing love for Alicia -- we learn more about the beginnings of this in flashback -- and how his caring for her in the hospital is his way of showing it. Camara has soft eyes and a sweet face, which gives Benigno an almost childlike innocence that is needed for us to find him sympathetic, so that we don't question his motives for involving himself so closely with Alicia.
I always enjoy Pedro Almodovar's films because they are never what I expect a film to be. He continually comes up with off the wall storylines, and his characters never act the way that "normal" people would. Plus, there's always a liberal dose of nudity featured (this time of the beautiful Watling), which never hurts.
One excellent example of this quirky sexuality comes in the middle of Talk to Her, when Benigno describes a film he saw involving a woman and her shrinking husband. The tiny man is shown crawling over his wife's naked body, trying his best to pleasure her. In the end, after some intense exploration, he gives himself fully to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars An engaging, quirky film May 21 2004
Format:DVD
There are 4 main characters to the story but each one is engaging in his/her own way. None of them possess "perfect" good looks but the character development and the plot and all those things that go into enhancing the movie : the cinematography, the score... just all blend together to create a very interesting film with interesting characters, moving the viewer along the peaks and the lows of each scene. At times it really made you think, other times, its pure scandal and quite thought-provoking, yet it does all this on a very basic and powerful level that can reach all types of audience. I don't know why some of the critics complain about this film having no "meaning" or purpose. Can't a good film be about the idiosyncracies of everyday life itself? Surely not every good film must be full of preach and talk about purpose... Some other critic said it makes no sense that the bullfighter was afraid of the snake... Does it ever make sense to you why some people are afraid of cockroaches and yet are not afraid of dogs and vice versa? The bottom line is, it doesn't always have to "make sense". Life just doesn't always make sense! People aren't always rational!

3.0 out of 5 stars What does it all mean? March 8 2004
Format:DVD
I think there is a tendency among critics, reviewers, movie-goers to rate a foreign film slightly higher than English-speaking counterparts. Something is mysterious, culturally refined, elevated in sometimes incomprehensible way. It's truly different so it must be good. All of these approaches with Almodavar's "Talk To Her," prove faulty. In the end, the movie, with me at least, just didn't connect.
The plot comes across as a contrivance, a contrivance that doesn't necessarily work. Two women are placed in the same hospital in a coma. One is a dancer, one is a bullfighter. Two men stand vigil waiting, talking, watching, wanting above anything for their objects of affection to wake up. The two men gain a confidance with one another, a bonded friendship, and the story plays out with different pathways taken, paths not always moral, not always sane.
I believe from this we are supposed to get a juxtaposed look at different relationships, communication, what is love, and all this other deep meaning of life pondering stuff. That seems to be the gyst of things at times in foreign films, we English speakers have this general sense that it's trying to say something deep if we could just stay awake through the droning plot to decipher the undecipherable. In the end, I found "Talk to Her" leaving little impression and stiving to hard to make a revelation. A revelation on what...I'm still not sure.
If you are heavily into foreign films, you may find this one interesting. If you aren't, you just may want to rent this one if you are an insomniac.
