"Leave it to Almodóvar to take our breath away right before galloping into the sunset." — Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
"Please seek out The Human Voice as soon as you can. It is a short, shockingly beautiful exploration of the stages of abandonment." — Lorry Kikta, Film Threat
"Almodóvar has never been a typical director and watching him rework this genre [the western], with intense performances from Hawke and Pascal, who are masculine and vulnerable at the same time, is a great lesson in the very art of directing." — Alci Rengifo, Entertainment Voice
