PAIN & GLORY, starring Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, is Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar’s 21st feature film. It is also his biggest grossing film in the UK since VOLVER was released in 2006.
Writer/Director Almodóvar is one of Spain’s most celebrated filmmakers with numerous accolades to his name including an Academy Award®, four BAFTAs, multiple Goyas and over 100 further wins and nominations.
Salvador Mallo is a veteran film director, afflicted by multiple ailments, the worst of which is his inability to continue filming. His physical condition doesn’t allow it and, if he can’t film again, his life has no meaning.
The mixture of medications, along with an occasional flirtation with heroin, means that Salvador spends most of his day prostrate. This drowsy state transports him back to reflect on his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to Paterna, a village in Valencia, in search of prosperity, and the struggles and improvising his Mother made so that the family could survive. The appearance of his first desire and his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.
