Talk to Her - 6

Another film from director Pedro Almodóvar. The film takes place in Spain and involves two stories that are intertwined by coma victims. Two men become friends while trying to take care of women they love that are in a coma. As the audience learns more about the circumstances surrounding the situations the story gets weirder. The dialogue is well written and the story brings up interesting points about how we make sense of people that are reduced to a vegetative state. This film fits well with the classical idea of a tragedy, although the ending alludes to hope for those left to try to understand their story.
