Pain and Glory

‘A film about pleasure, which is itself a pleasure: witty, intelligent and sensuous.’ THE GUARDIAN

Life meets art as Pedro Almodóvar reunites with 2019 Cannes actor prizewinner Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz in his most personal film yet. An ailing filmmaker approaching the end of his career reunites with his estranged star and is transported to luscious memories of his past. Almodóvar is a master of sensuous cinema and here he turns his wry gaze onto himself. Light, lovely and velvet smooth, Pain and Glory is a gorgeous reflection on cinema, art, family, love and sexual awakening.
