“Pain and Glory” is a powerful drama about a film director that reflects on the choices he’s made in life as the past and present come crashing down around him.
This film, directed by Academy Award winner Pedro Almodóvar, tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo (played by Antonio Banderas). Some of these reencounters play out in real time, others are recalled through flashbacks from his childhood in the 1960s, his first adult love and breakup, and the discovery of cinema. “Pain and Glory” talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation. [Spain, 2019, in Spanish with English subtitles, 113 minutes, Rating: R].
