The Secret Life of Words / Isabel Coixet

On an oil rig lost in the midst of the sea where only men work, a fatal accident occurs: one of the men is badly hurt and is affected by blindness.A solitary and mysterious woman, intent on forgetting her past, is sent to look after him.A strange kind of intimacy begins to develop between the man and the woman, a bond made of secrets, truths, lies, humor and pain, from which neither will come out unscathed, a bond that will change their lives forever. The Secret Life of Words is a film about the weight of the past, about silence, about a Spanish cook and a goose and about the power of love even under the most awful circumstances.
