Pedro Almodóvar reunites with Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz in his most personal film yet: a gorgeous reflection on cinema, art, family, love, and sexual awakening.

Banderas, in one of his finest performances (earning him the Best Actor Award at Cannes 2019), plays Salvador Mallo, who has a fair few things in common with Pedro Almodóvar. Suffering from a range of health issues, Salvador finds himself in a creative rut. He lacks the physical strength to make a film, and this inability to create makes him more depressed. This artistic limbo leads Salvador to reflect on his life, his loves and his films.

Almodovar's latest and most confessional work is a revealing and raw insight into the life of the director. As always, there is a meticulous attention to detail, and images and moments that make you swoon in the distinctive way that only a Pedro Almodóvar film can.

"Almodóvar captures the intimate feeling of having your wounds and memories repaired by time" -- Slashfilm

"The artful symmetry is an Almodovar hallmark, and his cinematic memento is filled with the intimate, indelible moments that made a life. You can feel his passion for cinema in every frame." -- Rolling Stone
