Pain and Glory
Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, 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 ones 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.

"Its the best Almodóvar has made in 15 years, and by far his most personal to date." - Frieze

"Pain and Glory is a film of multiple pleasures." - Sight & Sound

"Its the directors most moving film in years" - Film Comment

"While still embracing the visual facades that make his films such a pleasure to watch, Pain and Glory finds him stripping away the emotional facades, bringing us closer to him than ever before." - Chicago Reader

"Almodóvar shows us that, even after nearly two dozen features over several decades, he can still hold an audience in his hand - and surprise it." - Seattle Times
