There are some filmmakers whose work is so recognizable that you can tell that a project is theirs without even having to read the credits. Whether it is in the camera work, choice of actors, or the themes that they delve into, many will leave a noticeable imprint on their work without even realizing it. The French coined the term auteur to describe these specific kinds of directors. Pedro Almodovar fits precisely this description. Hailing from Spain, Almodovar is a person whose films look and feel one-of-a-kind—many may try to make the same type of story, but very few (if any) can make theirs quite as effectively as he can. His movies range from comedic to dramatic to horrific and everything in between, but all are distinctively his. One of his very best is Talk to Her (2002). Of all his films, this is the one that I’ve returned to the most, and is the one I associate him the most with.
