The Spanish filmmaker's English language debut comes to UK cinemas in November.

Over nine days in July, Pedro Almodóvar and Tilda Swinton collaborated on a reimagining of Jean Cocteau's short play The Human Voice. Swinton plays the role of a panicky woman isolated in an apartment decorated in the technicolor manner we associate with the Spanish filmmaker, who is working in the English language for the first time here.

The Human Voice plays in UK cinemas on November 7th and 8th. Screenings will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with Almodóvar and Swinton hosted by film critic Mark Kermode.

Check out the trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

Madness and melancholy intersect to thrilling effect as Almodóvar reimagines Jean Cocteau’s short play The Human Voice for an era in which isolation has become a way of life. Laws of desire become the rules of the game as Tilda Swinton’s unnamed woman paces and panics in a glorious Technicolor apartment where décor offers a window into her state of mind.  A short, sharp shot of distilled Almodóvar: passion, emotion, heartbreak, wit, and melodrama exquisitely bound up in a tale for our times.
