By March 3, 2019 Homepage, Season 22 films

Life meets art in this wistful film about a director whose physical powers are in decline as he recalls the passions that gave him meaning and hope.  Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz reunite with Pedro Almodóvar in his most personal movie to date.

The latest, wonderful film from Pedro Almodóvar asks what a director does when he runs into a creative blockage…Banderas excels in Almodóvar’s personal drama…a take on Fellini’s 8½.Irish Times ★★★★★

The director delivers another sensuous and deeply personal gem as Antonio Banderas’s ageing film-maker faces up to death.The Guardian.★★★★
