Spanish (English subtitles)
Two men meet in a hospital and start talking as they both watch over women in long-term comas - one as a nurse doing voluntary extra duty, the other as a boyfriend. Both, it turns out, have more of an emotional connection with the women who will not speak back than they do with anyone conscious. Gradually however, the two men form a close bond. That might sound like a creepy basis for a story, but genius Spanish director Pedro Almodovar manages to come up with a film that's constantly surprising, and funny, full of the tenderness and compassion that has seen him become one of the world's most acclaimed filmmakers.
Moving true story of writer Dominique Bauby's stroke, which left him paralysed except for his left eye, with which he was able to dictate his memoir.
