Two people sit next to each other in an audience. Months later their paths cross again and an unexpected friendship is struck due to the similarity of their respective tragedy. The pain of loss and loneliness, the joy of friendship and the difficulties of communication are all familiar Almodovar themes. Here, however, they are given a completely new perspective. Talk To Her is funny and moving as well as a technical tour-de-force. Almodovar still has the power to shock but this is an altogether more mellow film in which he has created a surreal world that holds us spellbound in morbid interest. Not to be missed.
