CLICK TO VIEW TRAILER: “The Human Voice” is a riveting short drama from popular filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar about the sufferings and emotions of an abandoned love.

A woman (played by award-winning actress Tilda Swinton) watches time passing next to the suitcases of her ex-lover (who is supposed to come pick them up, but never arrives) and a restless dog who doesn’t understand that his master has abandoned him. [2020, Spain, 30 min, Rated: R].

Ty Burr of the “Boston Globe” exclaims “”’The Human Voice’ is a banquet disguised as a light lunch, heady with flavors; you come away blissfully sated and hungry for more.” David Kaplan of “Kaplan vs Kaplan” says, “Swinton’s extraordinary performance makes it nearly impossible to look away.”
