Pedro Almodóvar, Tilda Swinton Start Shooting ‘The Human Voice’

When the short was announced in February, Almodóvar said he planned to start shooting in April in Madrid.

The original Cocteau play, set in Paris, is delivered in one act, and turns on a woman’s final phone call with her lover of five years, who is scheduled to marry another woman the following day. The call triggers crippling depression in the protagonist. The play has long been an influential source for Almodóvar, who featured it in 1987’s “The Law of Desire,” where Carmen Maura appeared in a stage production. It also inspired 1988’s “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” his first Oscar-nominated feature.
