"Pain and Glory is Almodóvar’s best work for years, marvellously framed and composed, comparatively restrained for him, hugely enjoyable moment by moment." 
- David Sexton, Evening Standard

"The director delivers another sensuous and deeply personal gem as Antonio Banderas’s ageing film-maker faces up to death"
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Banderas has rarely been better. The hangdog expression is riven with pain, and he plays Mallo as emotionally cauterised yet beneath it all still desperate to connect, to love and to make more films." 
- Kevin Maher, The Times

“Almodóvar fans will pore over Pain and Glory, looking for clues about how autobiographical this movie is. Others can simply sit back and enjoy the delicate and lyrical way in which Almodóvar shows his filmmaker hero voyaging deep into his past.”
- Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
