Synopsis

Benigno is infatuated with Alicia, a dancer he watches from the anonymity of his apartment. After an accident, she is brought to the hospital where Benigno happens to be her caregiver. When wounded bullfighter Lydia is brought into the same ward, her companion, Marco, bonds with Benigno.

MUBI's take

Winner of a Best Original Screenplay Oscar, Talk To Her boasts a sublimely improbable premise making for a perfect distillation of modern melodrama. This darkly exquisite version of Sleeping Beauty, where wounds and desire become indiscernible, is a transcendent celebration of male vulnerability.
