Critic Reviews for The Human Voice

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (1)

  • On a moment-to-moment basis, Swinton, backed up by her adoring director, cinematographer (José Luis Alcaine), costume designer (Sonia Grande) and cinematographer (Alberto Iglesias), delivers a can't-take-your-eyes-off-her performance.

    January 19, 2021 | Full Review…
  • One moment, Swinton is lamenting a lover's departure with a plaintiveness that could make your heart crack - and the next she's pacing feverishly across the floor, glinting axe in hand. As if we didn't already know it, the woman has range.

    November 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A very tasty slice of high melodrama courtesy of Pedro Almodóvar, Jean Cocteau, and Tilda Swinton.

    October 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a delight no matter how you slice it; for fans, it's a reminder of what makes Almodóvar such a great director, and for neophytes, it's an unforgettable introduction.

    September 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The results are mesmerizing.

    September 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • [Almodóvar] gravitates to stories of "women on the verge," and Swinton has this ethereal quality to her that makes her fragile and headstrong simultaneously. Both are working at the height of their powers here.
