#292: Talk to Her

2002, TSPDT Rank #753

This post contains content originally written for the Internet Film Club.

Talk to Her is a very moving film for some reason; very well-made and goes down smooth. Not perfect, but not rough around the edges like Dark Habits, and deserves to be taken more seriously. The way I saw it, it handled very serious and normally heavy themes in a melodramatic, almost campy way. For all of the potentially upsetting things in the movie, it seems a fairly light, if also sad, film about two people who lose their way in life, and need help in various ways. The bizarre "silent film" scene was great, almost delightful in a weird way.
In other words, its a hard movie to describe. ...although I didn't think it was a masterpiece, I really liked it a lot and am looking forward to other Almodovar movies.

(Rating: 8/10)
