Atom User Reviews for Pain and Glory
Almodovar creates an absolutely beautiful story about a man who is coming to terms with his older self. Wonderfully written and very inspired acting. Antonio Banderas and the entire cast were marvelous!
Loved it so much.
but it is very slow moving. loved the apartment
I’ll never get that 1.5 hours back in my life, so I left after 45 mins.
The film is one of the most meditative of Almodóvar’s career. ... It makes for less energetic and, yes, less exciting filmmaking. But “Pain and Glory” is a beautiful meditation on past and present, a memory piece that will nourish rather than provoke.
The effect is a patchwork rather than an interwoven whole; the wistfully self-reflexive tone will appeal to fans of the less emphatic, more meditative end of the Almodovar spectrum.
