"Talk to Her"
Directed by Pedro Almodovar
Director Pedro Almodovar (All About My Mother)
returns with this offbeat melodrama about the friendship between two men
brought together under unusual circumstances. Benigno, a male nurse, and
Marco, a journalist, meet in a hospital while caring for their loved ones
who both are in comas. The two forge a relationship drawn from their
loneliness, longing and obsessive devotion. Almodovar paints a deeply
touching picture of sympathy and empathy that is equally twisted and
surreal. "A movie of great, rending compassion and artistry" (Michael
Wilmington, The Chicago Tribune). 112 minutes.
