Synopsis

The acclaimed and adored Pedro Almodóvar reunites with Cannes Best Actor award winning Antonio Banderas in a vibrant and provocative look at Life as he tries to piece together the puzzle of his own life and  art.


Filmmaker Salvador Mallo is an ageing and fading movie director increasingly unsure if there’s anything he still wants to say. When he discovers that one of his earliest films is being reappraised and re-released, he reunites with estranged star Alberto, to whom he hasn’t talked in more than 30 years. As they did once before, the two men bring out the best and worst in each other, prompting Salvador to reflect on his childhood, sexuality and relationship to friends, family and lovers...


A dazzling showcase from a movie-making great, PAIN AND GLORY is powered by a cast of Almodóvar favourites – not least Penelope Cruz - and delivered with all the director's trademark humour, passion and sheer cinematographic brio.


The film is subtitled.
