Sophie Turcat : almodovar in search of a fraternal phallic penis

While homosexuality among siblings remains one of the last taboo subjects of clinical literature, the work of Almodovar would be a good illustration of it. Between homoeroticism, autoeroticism, incestuous attraction and the fraternal double, the filmmaker artistically tries to solve his own problems, while helping his male characters to conquer the phallic penis that women can so readily adapt themselves to in his universe. An analysis of “ Talk with her ” makes it possible to learn something of Almoldovar’s fantasises of. By lifting its modest veil we can perhaps better understand his view of a subject which is normally kept under silence.
