Pain and Glory

Spain 2019 | 113 minutes | Spanish | Hebrew, English subtitles

Film giant Pedro Almodóvar returns with his latest creation, undoubtedly his most personal to date. The film follows Salvador, a director whose days of glory are behind him, in a series of encounters over the course of his lifetime. Some are physical, others take place in his memory: from his childhood in Valencia where he first fell in love, through his discovery of film and first tumultuous adult love in Madrid, to the present, which is characterized by his new experiments and acceptance of the old. Pain and Glory is a heartfelt, dramatic film about creation and its inevitable link to the artist’s loves and passions that fill his life with meaning and hope. Starring Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas in an unforgettable role for which he won the Best Actor award at Cannes.
