Audience Reviews for Talk to Her

  • Mar 23, 2014
    Almodovars drama Talk to Her, is his most acclaimed film. A noticeable flaw is some contradiction in character, a bull fighter who fears a snake is possible but seems bizarre. These kind of moments range throughout but they don't take away from the films most powerful suit, the symbolism. There are many amazing moments, often Almodovar will artificially recreate the emotions of the two main characters (Marco & Benigno) on the coma patients. When Benigno speaks of Marco's crying during the first play he puts eye drops into his patient Alicia, creating artificial tears. This is done on another occasion during the silent film montage, which was a bizarre but great addition right before the climax. Once the tension is revealed the movie grows some deep but sick symbolism and themes. While the tension is not shocking since it was heavily preluded, the way Almodovar handles the situation is. The symbolism grows after this as you can literally see Benigno getting inside Marcos head when he first comes back to visit him. The necrophiliac premise is revolting, but the message Almodovar put across really got inside my head. Next up, Bad Education.

    Another Almodovar classic using characters that most people do not come across in their lives. The connections between these people are always real however and the interplay is sizzling.

    "Hable con ella" is a delightful movie to watch. It is written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar in such great style that stars Javier Cámara, Darío Grandinetti, Leonor Watling, Geraldine Chaplin, and Rosario Flores were let to shine in all of their glamour! The screenplay is outstanding and that is the reason that it won the 2002 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the 2003 Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign-Language Film. The deep subject of the difficulty of communication between the sexes, loneliness and intimacy, and the persistence of love beyond loss is explored thoroughly in the way which is not overwhelming - of course subjects like this could be hard to entertain the wider audience, but this art work had no problems with it. Wonderful mystique is used so well and when you are not sure where will everything lead you, pieces start falling into places with an almost surreal enjoyment (most of the time). Don't miss it!
