A first trailer has just been released for “Dolor Y Gloria” (“Pain & Glory”), the latest film from acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar.


The director’s first movie since 2016’s “Julieta” stars two longtime Almodóvar favorites: Antonio Banderas (“Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!”, “The Skin I Live In”) and Penélope Cruz (“Broken Embraces”, “Volver”).

The film cuts back and forth in time, following an ageing filmmaker, Salvador Mallo (Banderas) as he looks back at the various relationships in his life, including lovers, his mother and colleagues, from his childhood in Valencia to his adult life in Madrid .


The cast also includes Asier Etxeandia, Julieta Serrano and Leonardo Sbaraglia.

Both Banderas and Cruz were seen in cameo roles in Almodóvar’s 2013 comedy “I’m So Excited”.

“Dolor y Gloria” will release in Spain on March 22. International release dates are not yet known as of writing. JB
