Pain and Glory Dolor y gloria
Pedro Almodóvar / Spain / 2019 / 113 min / Spanish
A renowned filmmaker in physical decline experiences a series of re-encounters, some in the flesh, others remembered. His childhood in Valencia, his first adult love, the pain of the breakup, and his discovery of cinema.
Bong Joon-ho / South Korea / 2019 / 132 min / Korean
The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
