Buy it... if you want to experience a short-lived, but shining international hit consisting of a competent blend of classical chamber music and authentic Spanish flavor.

Avoid it... if relatively obscure scores that whisper their intents in subtly constrained fashion don't engage you regardless of their effective, multicultural constructs.

Iglesias
Talk to Her: (Alberto Iglesias) Considered one of 2002's most engrossing dramas, Talk to Her is Pedro Almodóvar's twisted story of love, obsession, and loss. These are typical topics for the writer and director, but this film in particular is delivered with such strong character development that even its most seemingly innocuous conversational scenes can merge both suspense and romance into singular moments. Two men form a bond when the women they love, both in comatose states, are housed next to each other at a hospital. In the process of exploring the relationships both men had with their hopeless partners, Talk to Her suggests a tone of homoerotic tension between the men and conflicts with other family members. It's a rare "talking head" film of deep sexuality that involves men at its core, and it received outstanding marks from critics during the awards season of early 2003. Neither Almodóvar nor composer Alberto Iglesias may have been household names for American film score collectors, but their collaborations were gaining notice in Europe and Latin areas of the planet at such a rate that they eventually reached relative international fame. Their work together dates back to 1995's The Flower of My Secret and includes the subsequent Live Flesh and All About My Mother (the latter of which also highly praised). Iglesias' career in film composition began in the early 1980's and he has won several international awards for his music since that time (along with Oscar nominations). He is also known for his concert arrangements and chamber music, as well as symphonic compositions for large ballet productions. The film Talk to Her was one of those enigmas that successfully bridged the oceanic gap between different cultural audiences, and one result of that success was an unceasing popularity for Iglesias' Talk to Her score on album at the start of 2003. In its soundscape, the film exhibits some very obvious and memorable uses of score and song, too, further heightening the popularity of the music on album. In the effectiveness of his stately and occasionally warm writing for these dramatic stories, Iglesias continued to impress.
