Did You Know?
Chosen by "Telerama" (France) as one of the 10 best pictures of 2002 (#01, tied with "Mies vailla menneisyyttä")
Love is the saddest thing when it goes away, as a song by Jobim goes.
Very beautiful and compelling, but perhaps not for every one.
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
'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
