About the Film

Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline—played by Antonio Banderas—begins to question his life decisions. His mind delves back into his 1960s childhood; his first love, the anguish of heartbreak, the catharsis of writing, his early discovery of the silver screen, and the infinite void that now renders him unable to continue making films. As he re-examines his past, Salvador is swept by an urgent need to recount it, seeking salvation. Banderas was awarded Best Actor at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.
