The Human Voice
Madness and melancholy intersect to thrilling effect as Almodovar reimagines Jean Cocteau’s short play The Human Voice for an era in which isolation has become a way of life. Laws of desire become the rules of the game as Tilda Swinton’s unnamed woman paces and panics in a glorious Technicolor apartment where decor offers a window into her state of mind. A short, sharp shot of distilled Almodovar: passion, emotion, heartbreak, wit, and melodrama exquisitely bound up in a tale for our times.
