Although different in it's premise, this quite interesting drama has it's best moments, seen in it's intense conflict with Langley, a writer for a comic, who suspects husband (Jarratt) of infidelity. Her younger sexier friend is Milliken who also works the store, must be the illustrator, though all we hear from her is constant talk, mostly throughout, and she's not afraid to be uninhibited either. And she just returned from holiday. Lucky us. She falls in love with stranger Roxburgh (wasted), who comes to the shop, to fix the tele, While also making money, flogging them (think of Jarratt in Australian Dream). Now in between, we see the girl's problems illustrated through animation, but more bizarre, we have fictional Asian characters, as the narrators. Different. But talk really lives up to it's title, nothing more. A cute independent film, with our sexy Milliken, brilliant as always, matched with Longley's strong performance. Is the much younger Mackenzie (also wasted) the apple of Jarratt's eye, or is Longley just taking her anger and frustration out on her. There are truly moments, where you will want the verbose Milliken, just to shut the f..k up. For Jarratt fans, the close you'll get to him in this, is a family photograph.
