Overview

A woman is waiting for her lover´s call in a house where they used to live. Finally the phone rings. She hopes he would come back as they share their lovable memories. But a man says goodbye to her and she is not ready for this.

Review

The Human Voice (1930), a play that Jean Cocteau wrote for Edith Piaf who ultimately refused to star in it, inspired numerous directors throughout the history of film to turn it into a movie. Almodovar was not an exception, and he showed affection for the play in his film Law of Desire (1987) by having Carmen Maura’s character play the role of an actress who was starring in The Human Voice. This film adaptation of the play, which was written over 90 years ago, does not feature a corded phone that you have to use in one place and instead shows an elaborate set where the characters can move around with their earbuds connected to their cell phones. But as shown by the scene in which Tilda Swinton hacks her lover’s suit with an ax, the conflict and unavoidable feeling that creeps up in the moment love dies still remains the same even after nearly a century since this play was born. (Sung MOON)

* The online Q&A session (around 50’) with the director and the actor is to be screened just after the official screening of the film (31’). Please refer to this Q&A clip that was recorded on September 29, 2020, in NYFF58, not a live event.
