Pain And Glory

Antonio Banderas delivers the performance of his career in a movie loosely based on the life of the director who gave him his breakthrough role.

In Pedro Almodóvar’s 21st film, Banderas plays Salvador Mallo, a former cinematic enfant terrible. Now in his autumn years, he’s afflicted with creative paralysis and debilitating illnesses: migraines, tinnitus, panic attacks, relentless back pain, and a reflex to choke on solid food. To ease his torment, Salvador experiments for the first time with heroin. But a remedy, if there is one, must come from inside.

"The Spanish filmmaker’s tale of a memory, regret and an ageing director making peace with his past isn’t just his most personal film — it’s also one of his greatest!" Rolling Stone
