Dolor y Gloria
16:30, 21:20. Drama. Spain 2019, 113 min. Directed by Pedro Almodóvar. Starring: Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Leonardo Sbaraglia. In Spanish with Russian subtitles. Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.

15:00. Documentary. UK 2018, 110 min. Directed by David Morris, Jacqui Morris. Starring: Siân Phillips, Dick Cavett, Margot Fonteyn. In English with Russian subtitles. This striking and moving documentary from BAFTA nominated directors Jacqui and David Morris traces the extraordinary life of Rudolf Nureyev. From his birth in the 5th class carriage of a trans-Siberian train, to his dramatic leap to freedom in the West at the height of the Cold War, and unprecedented adulation as the most famous dancer in the world. The film highlights Nureyev's unlikely yet legendary partnership with Margot Fonteyn and charts his meteoric rise to the status of global cultural phenomenon. Nureyev's life plays out like the sweeping plot of a classic Russian novel. His story is Russia's story. Blending never-before-seen footage, with an original score by award-winning composer Alex Baranowski and spellbinding newly choreographed dance tableaux directed by Royal Ballet alumnus, Russell Maliphant, Nureyev is a theatrical and cinematic experience like no other. This is a portrayal as unique as the man himself. There will never be another Nureyev.
Karo 7 Atrium 
11:50. Biography, Comedy, Crime. Canada, USA 2018, 92 min. Directed by Robert Budreau. Starring: Ethan Hawke, Noomi Rapace, Mark Strong. In English with Russian subtitles. Stockholm is based on the absurd but true story of a 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis. The film follows Lars Nystrom, (Ethan Hawke) who dons a disguise to raid a central Stockholm bank. He then takes hostages in order to spring his pal Gunnar (Mark Strong) from prison. One of the hostages includes Bianca (Noomi Rapace), a wife and mother of two. As hours turn into days, Lars alternates between threatening the hostages and making them feel comfortable and secure. The hostages develop an uneasy relationship with their captor, which is particularly complex for Bianca, who develops a strong bond with Lars as she witnesses his caring nature. This connection gave rise to the psychological phenomenon known as "Stockholm syndrome".

Teen Spirit
23:40. Starring: Elle Fanning, Agnieszka Grochowska, Archie Madekwe. In English with Russian subtitles. Elle Fanning plays Violet, a lonely teenager getting by in a small European village, where she exists as a ghost in both her broken home and her contemptuous school. She has dreams, though, and wants to be a star ó a pop star. Slowly, she tests her strengths at a grungy local bar, singing sad-bastard versions of dance hits, which catch the ear of a washed-up opera singer. Armed with a manager-of-sorts, Violet decides to enter an international singing competition called, you guessed it, Teen Spirit. Driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack, the movie is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.
