PAIN & GLORY
A Drama from Spain (113 min)
Salvador is critically adored but hasn’t worked for a long time due to health and pain issues. So he adds a little heroin to his opioids. This helps to bring out some of his repressed issues that he has. When one of his pictures has suddenly gained notoriety, he has to hook up with the star of the film with whom he has not talked to for over thirty years. This adds to his problems. Salvador is a thinly veiled character for whom the movie is really about, Pedro Almodovar, the movie’s director.
The clothes the paintings and other props, literally come off the back of the director. Antonio Banderas was nominated for leading actor at this years Academy Awards. Almodovar is probably Spain’s greatest director
