/pain and glory

2019 MA 115 mins
director: Pedro Almodóvar

"A masterful, melancholy, tender, lacerating self-examination, filled with colour and light and the ghosts of those he has loved. Almodovar at 70, and perhaps astonishing to himself, continues to grow."

Paul Byrnes - Sydney Morning Herald

/Pedro Almodóvar


born 1949

Cuidad Real, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain

"All my movies have an autobiographical dimension, but that is indirectly, through the personages. In fact, I am behind everything that happens and that is said, but I am never talking about myself in first person singular. Something in me--probably a dislike of cheap exhibitionism--stops me from approaching a project too autobiographically."

Pedro Almodóvar
