Pain and Glory ★★★½

I don't know the work of Pedro Almodóvar, but you can tell Pain and Glory is a deeply personal film from its writer/director, who tells this story of human pain and reencounters in a sincere and delicate fashion with an exquisite final shot that subverts the biopic genre. Antonio Banderas delivers a restrained performance, but it's the supporting cast that elevates the narrative, especially Penélope Cruz and Asier Flores.
