ORDONEZ FERNANDEZ, Prado. Erotomanic delusion in Almodovar's film "Hable con ella". Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.7, pp.360-364. ISSN 2386-8201.

Erotomania is a delusional disorder subtype in which the core symptom is that the subject is under the delusion that another person is in love with him or her. The delusion is usually of an idealised romantic love, a spiritual union rather than a mere sexual attraction. In his film "Hable con ella" Almodóvar presents the dynamics of this disorder, which uses the same elements of reasoning and human passion and ends in the delusion of an impossible love.

Keywords : Mental Disorders; Delirium.
