User Review

Very beautiful and compelling, but perhaps not for every one.

Rating: 9/10

I had absolutely no idea what to expect when I watched 'Hable Con
Ella'. All I knew was that it was directed by Pedro Almodovar, who is
considered as one of the biggest talents outside of Hollywood. Well, he
certainly has some talent. A talent to make movies that are not always
easy to watch, but certainly thought provoking, beautiful, compelling
and stylish.

'Hable Con Ella' tells the story of two men who are in love with a
woman in a coma and how they both handle this in a different way. They
meet each other in the hospital with a beautiful friendship between the
two men as a result.

Pedro Almodovar is some kind of artist who likes to paint with words
and images. As a result you get a beautiful tale about obsession, love,
friendship and desperation, which may not be to everybody's taste
because of the bizarre subject, but which certainly touched me. It's
very original and I would recommend it to everybody who isn't afraid to
watch a movie with a special subject. I give it a 9/10
