Talk to her (Habla con Ella)

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

The curtain of salmon-coloured roses and heavy gold fringing which covers the stage is pulled back to reveal a Pina Bausch spectacle, "Cafe Muller." Among the spectators, two men are sitting together by chance. They don't know each other. They are Benigno (Javier CáMara), a young nurse, and Marco (Darío Grandinetti), a writer in his early forties. On the stage, filled with wooden chairs and tables, two women, their eyes closed and their arms extended, are moving to the music of "The fairy Queen, by Henry Purcell. The piece is so moving that Marco starts to cry. Benigno can see the gleam of his chance companion's tears, in the darkness of the stalls. He'd like to tell him that he too is moved by the spectacle but he doesn't dare.

Months later, the two men meet again at "El Bosque," a private clinic where Benigno works. Lydia (Rosario Flores), Marco's girlfriend and a bullfighter by profession, has been gored and is in a coma. It so happens that Benigno is looking after another woman in a coma, Alicia (Leonor Watling), a young ballet student.

When Marco walks by the door of Alicia's room, Benigno doesn't think twice before speaking to him. It's the start of an intense friendship... as lineal as a roller coaster. During this period of suspended time between the walls of the clinic, the lives of the four characters will flow in all directions, past, present and future, dragging all of them towards an unsuspected destiny.
