From Pedro Almodóvar, the director of the Academy-Award(r) winning All About My Mother (Best Foreign Language Film, 2000), comes his most acclaimed film yet. TALK TO HER is the surprising, altogether original and quietly moving story of the spoken and unspoken bonds that unite the lives and loves of two couples. Two men (Benigno and Marco) almost meet while watching a dance performance, but their lives are irrevocably entwined by fate. They meet later at a private clinic where Benigno is the caregiver for Alicia, a beautiful dance student who lies in a coma. Marco is there to visit his girlfriend, Lydia, a famous matador, also rendered motionless. As the men wage vigil over the women they love, the story unfolds in flashback and flashforward as the lives of the four are further entwined andtheir relationships move toward a surprising conclusion.
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!

A moving and complex study of the relationship between two men, and their connection to women in comas.
A few brilliantly funny moments, and some ultimately very creepy undertones keep it from being over-sentimental.
Every character is more complex then they first appear, and the confusion between what is good and what is bad
in both intent and effect is very rich. Some great camera work too. Gets slow in a few spots, and the sentiment
still goes over the top in a few places, but still a terrific film about the similarities and differences between love and obsession.
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.Read more ›
