Just finished watching this on a Sunday afternoon
4 May 2008 | by (NYC, USA & Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Talking heads comprises a 30-40 minute monologue of a character, documenting experiences that they have had in the life. While the first season was interesting and at times moving, this second season takes us to an altogether deeper level.

This second season focuses on 6 more characters, explaining the experiences they have had, recent or distant. While all 6 monologues are exceptional, there were 2 particularly moving ones.

Waiting for the telegram has Thora Hird, a 90-something year old woman in a nursing home explaining her life. When she reminisces on her young man back in World War I, it becomes truly saddening.

Nights in the Gardens of Spain has Penelope Wilton explaining her relationship with the woman next door, who has killed her husband after suffering an abusive relationship for many years. Not wanting to give too much away, this story is gripping and moving, and very very sad.

If you are looking to have a meaningful and moving Sunday afternoon sometime, this second season of Talking Heads is recommended.
