This is being considered to be Antonio Banderas' best film in his longstanding career. The film is a meta-drama on director Pedro Almodóvar's experiences. After winning the best actor honour at Cannes, the actor said, "Almodóvar is my mentor. We have been friends for 40 years... I saw things in the script that I didn't know about him. He was very sincerely confronting himself in front of an audience in the film." Pain and Glory is being distributed by PVR Pictures in India and is all set to hit the screens on January 31.
