Life. There is so much LIFE in this movie. Pedro Almodovar’s 2002 capital-M Masterpiece Talk to Her is the kind of movie that reminds us how perfunctory and utilitarian most movie characters are. They say things only that advance the plot or maybe because they sound cool, but those characters aren't real. They don’t say or do things that matter or affect us. They don't exist even in our imaginations. They exist on screen and then disappear immediately once the credits roll.
