Acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar offers an emotionally resonant and deeply personal reflection on filmmaking, love and family.

Antonio Banderas, in a performance that earned him the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival, plays Salvador Mallo, a director stuck in a creative rut. The film follows Mallo as he reflects on the key moments of his life — childhood, past loves and artistic glories — that weave back into the present of his existential predicament. Nominated for the Palme d’Or, and with Alberto Iglesias winning the Cannes Soundtrack Award, Pain and Glory presents Almodóvar in a subtly reflective mode that emphasises his meticulous and artful cinematic style.
