Flashcards in Notes from Marsha Kinder Deck (4)
Who is Marsha Kinder?
- An American film scholar.
How is Talk to Her different than the other film's in Almodovar's trilogy?
- Unlike the Flower of My Secret and All About My Mother, Talk to Her tackles resuscitation and reawakening'
- Resuscitation means to revive
What can be said about Talk to Her and reawakening?
-'Only the dancer is bought back to life, through acts of love, verbal and physical that reawaken her body as a motherland'
-With this quote Marsha is referring to Alicia who is ultimately reawakened by Benigno's sacrificial act. With the use of 'motherland', I believe that Marsha is referring to Spain and it's reawakening, post Franco, which draws similarities to Alicia's awakening, post comma.
