Cinematique Presents: "Pain and Glory"

Nov 8, 2019

Pain and Glory runs from Monday, November 25 thru Wednesday, November 27. It screens Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.

In Pedro Almodóvar’s remarkable new film, a film director reflects on the choices he's made in life as the past and present come crashing down around him. 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.

“Almodóvar fills this poignant tapestry of recollections with bold colours and infuses them with emotional detail. It’s a deeply intimate experience and it’ll pierce your heart.” Josep Lambies, Time Out

“Pain and Glory is a film to savour like a fine bourbon, watching how Salvador (and Almodóvar) wrestles with demons of the mind, heart and body.” Peter Howell, Toronto Star
