Antonio Banderas in a career high, earned himself the Best Actor Award at Cannes for this reflection of life, love and pain from legendary Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar.

Banderas plays Salvador Mallo, a director in the autumn of his life and career with a range of medical ailments in artistic limbo. This, and the fleeting high of opiates introduced to him by an estranged friend, causes Salvador to reflect on the highs and lows of his life and childhood with a focus on his mother, played by a superb Penelope Cruz. It’s no coincidence the name ‘Salvador Mallo’ can be derived from ‘Almodovar’, this semi biographical work of fiction runs almost parallel to the director’s own life, with no actor being better suited to play the part than Banderas, a long-time collaborator of Almodovar’s.

Pain and Glory is a raw display of emotion, a deeply personal and endearing showcase from the undisputed master of Spanish cinema.

"The artful symmetry is an Almodovar hallmark, and his cinematic memento is filled with the intimate, indelible moments that made a life. You can feel his passion for cinema in every frame". - Empire
