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 that creates the incapacity to keep on making films.

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.

"PAIN AND GLORY is Almodóvar's best work for years, marvellously framed and composed, comparatively restrained for him, hugely enjoyable moment by moment. "
David Sexton - LONDON EVENING STANDARD

"PAIN AND GLORY, the filmmaker's best and most personal movie in years, brings him back to mortal terrain. "
Eric Kohn - INDIEWIRE

"As well as expressing his views on love, loss and filmmaking, Almodóvar addresses broader political and social themes, offering thinly-veiled critiques of Catholicism and General Franco's authoritarian leadership."
Adam Woodward - LITTLE WHITE LIES
