High Heels gifs

I’ve tried making gifs of Victoria Abril, and can’t quite, at least successful ones. She’s such a transparent and emotive actress that every move in her face counts, speeding her up diminishes what she has to offer, and she can’t be camped up, or at least I can’t, which in a paradoxical way is a measure of her greatness. The gif, rather than bringing something else out, diminishes what she herself creates. A thought.

When Javier was hubba hubba (in a small bit for High Heels, as Victoria Abril announces she’s killed her husband)

When a gif doesn’t quite work as well as the original

The rhymes in the sound being just as important as the repetition in image, if not more so.
