(Cannes film fest) Pedro Almodóvar drama has biographical overtones

World | 20 May 2019 8:28 pm

Alejandro González Iñárritu and Maria Eladia Hagerman turned up in Prada at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival for the Dolor Y Gloria (Pain and Glory) screening last week. Starring Antonio Banderas as a brooding anti-hero, this 'masculine' film is a fresh take on the autobiographical genre, with glimpses of Pedro Almodóvar himself shining through in the reclusive, maudlin director protagonist. 

Dolor y Gloria is a fleeting snapshot of a portrait of the filmmaker, as fictional as it is true to life.
