It’s about Alex, whose life quickly unravels after recording eerie voices in the audio of a documentary he’s working on. Are they sinister or are they trying to warn him of something?

They Talk was directed by Giorgio Bruno (who also directed Nero Infinito) and stars Rocío Muñoz, Margaux Billard and Sydney White.

They Talk (2022)

This film grabbed my attention immediately as it was about a group making a documentary but it didn’t go down the found footage route so that was a nice change. It kept my attention as it had an interesting plot, some stunning imagery which is in the same sort of wheelhouse as Saint Maud (2019), and a range of scares. These terrors come in the form of creepy kids, nuns, sinister whispering, and a healthy dose of blood so there’s something for everyone! The soundtrack to this film is also truly a masterpiece as it manages to be unsettling but not overpower the sinister whispering so we can still hear both.

Aside from the scares, the film is also a thoughtful exploration of grief and how messy that healing process can be. This really enriches the film, making it feel like it has a message for us but not in a ‘preachy’ way. It also means we meet some interesting characters who are sometimes hard to like but always very human. The sensible decision is made to lose a couple of secondary, weaker characters and focus on a core three, and as we learn all about them the scares hit harder because we care about them. The acting is solid across the board but Jonathan Tufvesson as Alex puts in a star turn and we really feel Alex being pulled in all manner of directions by curiosity, love, and fear. I don’t want to give too much away but look out for the bridge scene as that blew me away.

The film is well-paced, if anything it’s a touch on the fast side, and as the stakes are raised and past bleeds into present it races to a truly shocking conclusion. It does leave you to answer some questions yourself which won’t be to everyone’s taste but personally I felt this was an interesting artistic choice and it worked for this film.

Worth Watching?

Definitely, it’s a treat for your eyes and mind.
