Pain and Glory
Pedro Almodóvar is back with yet another masterpiece, filled with the great combinationof humour and seriosity that makes him one of the great auteurs! In the glow of the colourful filmmaking, Almodóvar tells the story about Salvador Mallo, a filmmaker in the twilight of his career, remembering his life: his mother, his lovers, the actors he worked with. The sixties in a small village in Valencia, the eighties in Madrid, the present, when he feels an immeasurable emptiness, facing his mortality, the incapability of continuing filming, the impossibility of separating creation from his own life. The need of narrating his past can be his salvation. Pain and Glory is a visual and emotional fiesta for all the fans of Almodóvar - it is the film he always wanted to make, and perhaps, is the story about himself.
