Talk to Me (2023)

Cambridge Film Festival 2023: Film #22

A fairly well-observed family portrait of a kind, the success of which probably depends on how much you can connect with the mother-daughter relationship and in believing that these characters have lives that exist outside of the screenplay… in addition to the emotional unloading in the musical numbers. That Karo's bangs were obscuring her literal and metaphorical vision was a nice touch, but film was, in general, was a little for me. Lots of 'German-style' nudity if you're into that.
