    Pain and glory

    Pain and glory is a drama film, two hours long, directed by Pedro Amoldovar, it stars Antonio Banderas as a stand in for the director himself and is based partially on Amoldovar's life, showing the director as an old man getting on in years and reflecting on the past along with his current frustrations.
