Antonio Banderas (Almodóvar)

The voice of the Spanish actor Antonio Banderas when referring to the new film by Pedro Almodóvar, Dolor y Gloria, in which he becomes into the alter ego of the film-maker from Castilla La Mancha.

Banderas is convinced this latest film by Almodóvar has “some psychoanalysis” because it contains “a very deep search within him”.

The film, which will not hit theaters until next March 22nd, gathers flashbacks based on the most decisive moments of the Manchego filmmaker’s existence, with the presence of his mother as an essential point, Penélope Cruz as mother of her years of childhood, youth and people, and Julieta Serrano in the end, until the days of his death.

Banderas has filmed eight films with Almodóvar, the first at twenty-five, “Matador” (1986).

Listen MP3 (March 12, 2019):

Read translation of the transcription:

“A very deep search within himself and having tried to communicate very complicated things to communicate through the cinema, which is the only way that I think Pedro really uses to talk to the world, right? and with himself though the cinema. Yes, there is some psychoanalysis in him. People say it’s a very autobiographical film, he calls it self-fiction, but deep down I think that all of Pedro’s films are … they have something of that. “
