Synopsis

Members' Choice

Just about every critic has this down as the best film Almodóvar has done for some time and, as we like his films here in Keswick, this should be a treat for us.

Antonio Banderas plays Salvador Mallo (plays Almodóvar: this is semi-autobiographical), an ageing director who has not made a film in a while. We follow his suffering and memories through this 'achingly beautiful' film.

Critics

open_quote Almodóvar's colors...aren't just a stimulant but an energy source, like sugar: they get the eyes busy and keep them working, in turn heating up the brain's furnace. And before long, the heart starts pumping harder as well. Everything about 'Pain and Glory' is awake and alive, and Almodóvar's nerve endings become ours, too close_quote Stephanie Zacharek, Time
