    SYNOPSIS
    _______________________________________________________________


    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 that creates the incapacity to keep on making films.

    Golden Globe® is the registered trademark of the HFPA.

    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.

    This is one of the year's best films and Banderas has been winning many awards for his magnificent performance. Highest recommendation!

    Agreed - perfect timing, being released two weeks before Criterion releases Almodovar's masterpiece All About My Mother. Pain and Glory was one of very few films I saw theatrically this year and I look forward to seeing it again.
