Pain & Glory (DVD)
Pedro Almodóvar writes and directs this Spanish drama starring Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz. It's being hailed as a modern masterpiece.
Antonio Banderas plays Salvador Mallo, a film director in physical decline who reflects on his past as his present comes crashing down around him.
Some of these reflections are 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; 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 infinite void created by the incapacity to keep on making films.
