Talk To Her (Discover - Pedro Almodóvar) - East Dulwich Picturehouse - London

Part of our Pedro Almodóvar retrospective - http://ow.ly/qRfc50vwavXSynopsis: Male nurse Benigno becomes infatuated with a complete stranger when he watches dancer Alicia practicing from the anonymity of his apartment. After being injured in a car accident, Alicia is brought to a nearby hospital, where Benigno serendipitously happens to be her caregiver. When wounded bullfighter Lydia is brought into the same ward, her companion, writer Marco, begins to bond with Benigno.Directed with characteristic brio and style, Talk To Her showcases Almodóvar's ability to craft strong female characters and win the confidence of his actors, who, as ever, oblige with deft performances. It’s a valuable and gently optimistic contribution to Almodóvar's impressive canon.
