    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The actors are outstanding, illuminating four different views of loneliness. But it's Camara's tour-de-force performance that anchors the film, that shocks and unnerves us. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    This is Almodovar's stab at serious drama, and the result is bizarre and affecting but also unsettling in ways that the filmmaker may not have intended. show more

    It is at once warmly humanistic and boldly innovative, raising philosophical questions but not answering them. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Beautiful (sometimes sublimely so), daring (sometimes outrageously so), seriously crazed and terrifically funny. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Almodóvar has made a powerfully moving film about men who think they want to lose themselves in their women, then are startled to realize that they're the ones who have been comatose. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    This quiet yet jolting meditation on love, obsession, loneliness, friendship and fate has the quality to entrance you through a first viewing, and compel you to take its themes and characters home with you for further consideration. show more

    Great filmmakers push their ideas and characters to the limit, unafraid of consequences - which is what Pedro Almodovar has done in Talk To Her, his latest film and, I think, his best. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    One of Almodóvar's most challenging pictures, jumping around in time and sending a large gallery of characters through a wide variety of situations -- will find him again at the peak of his powers. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    This rich, emotionally complex movie finds Almodóvar venturing into trickier, more fascinating territory, even if his themes. show more

    One of Almodovar's best. Totally entertaining. I rate Almodovar's best movies as four stars but well understand while some rate at 5 stars.
