Lost in Frenchlation is proud to present, ‘Pain and Glory’, the first international screening with English subtitles on July 5th, with the chance to explore Montmartre with our additional walking tour through the lens of ‘Amelie’ and Parisian cinema. From the mind of legendary Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar, comes his new, semi-autobiographical drama with frequent collaborators Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas.
‘Pain and Glory’ tells of a series of re-encounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, played by Antonio Banderas, 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; his 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 and writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable; his early discovery of cinema; and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity for him 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. – Plot
“The director delivers another sensuous and deeply personal gem as Antonio Banderas’s ageing filmmaker faces up to death.” – The Guardian
“Antonio Banderas excels as a version of the Spanish auteur in what may be the closest he comes to crafting a memoir in the medium he knows best.” – Variety
