Pain & Glory

Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Starring: Penélope Cruz, Nora Navas, Antonio Banderas, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Julieta Serrano, Asier Etxeandia
Duration: 113 min


In Almodóvar’s deeply personal and tender new drama, a film director reflects on the choices he’s made in life as past and present come crashing down around him. Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas, who deservedly won Best Actor at Cannes Film Festival for his performance), an ageing Madrid-based auteur, is retreating into himself, facing ill health, depression and the decline of his powers. After a chance meeting reunites him with an actor from his past, a wild new chapter begins, sparking a series of reconciliations and reveries in which Salvador revisits old emotional wounds and tries to piece together the puzzle of his life and his art.
