Directed by Pedro Almodóvar
(Spain, 2019, 113 minutes)

PAIN AND GLORY tells of a series of re-encounters experienced by Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas), a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void created by the incapacity to keep on making films. 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.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Asier Etxeandia, Leonardo Sbaraglia, César Vicente, and Asier Flores.

• Shortlisted as Spain’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film Oscar®
