Hull Independent Cinema presents PAIN AND GLORY
Pedro Almodóvar | 2019 | Spain | Cert 15 | 113 mins | Spanish language with English subtitles

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.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Asier Etxeandia

Awards and Reviews
Winner, Best Actor, Nominee, Palme d’Or – Cannes Film Festival
Nominee, Best Film – Sydney Film Festival

“Pain and Glory is Almodóvar’s best work for years, marvellously framed and composed, comparatively restrained for him, hugely enjoyable moment by moment.” – London Evening Standard “The hangdog expression is riven with pain, and [Banderas] plays Mallo as emotionally cauterised yet beneath it all still desperate to connect, to love and to make more films.” – The Times
