Pedro Almodóvar won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for this 2002 film, which “combines sensuality, spirituality, and sheer joy in storytelling” (Time Out). Javier Cámara and Darío Grandinetti star as two men who meet first at a dance performance by Pina Bausch, then in a hospital where each is caring for a woman in a coma. A friendship blossoms, but sorrow may never be far behind them. Almodóvar said that the figure of Bausch in Café Müller “was the image which best represented the limbo in which my story’s protagonists lived. Two women in a coma who, despite their apparent passivity, provoke the same solace, the same tension, passion, jealousy, desire and disillusion in men as if they were upright, eyes wide open and talking a mile a minute.”
