Storyline

The protagonist of "Pain and Glory" was at the decline of his career. The man involuntarily looks back into the past, and a stream of vivid memories falls upon him. He recalls such moments from his youth as tender feelings for his mother, love and separation, the search for happiness and success. All this leads the master of cinema to important thoughts about life and art, because this is the most important thing for him. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

Interesting and deep story signed by Almodovar
15 August 2019 | by chiaragiacobelliSee all my reviews

If you are expecting a funny and ironic movie, this is not for you. In this case Almodovar talks about serious and deep matters, he creates an interesting protagonist with a strong story and it confuses times and places in order that you can understand all his life only at the end. Banderas is good in the role of the gay director full of phisical and psichological problems, looking for a reason to write and work again. Some scenes are really emotional, especially the relationship with his mother. I liked it very much.
