Facing ill health, depression and the decline of his powers, ageing film director Salvador Mallo reflects on the choices he has made in life as past and present come crashing down around him. The film narrates a series of reunions, some played out in real time, while others are recalled through flashbacks: his childhood in the 1960s, when his family moved to the village of Paterna near Valencia, his schooling, his first adult love in Madrid in the 1980s, the pain of the breakup of this relationship, writing as a therapy to forget, the discovery of cinema and the prospect of being unable to continue filming.

Director: Pedro Almodóvar 

Starring: Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Asier Etxeandia, Leonardo Sbaraglia
