Set in Catalonia, Painless weaves two stories: in one, starting during the Spanish Civil War and running through to the '60s, an asylum attempts to rehabilitate children who feel no pain, by teaching them physical suffering. In the second, in the present time, a brilliant neurosurgeon who needs a bone marrow transplant, discovers this dark past when he searches for his biological parents.

Wasted potential all the way. It would have been a lot better if they ditched the "discovery" plotline from the movie and instead focused on the children. Some scenes were fine but that doesn't make up for the boredom I felt in some scenes and the lackluster ending.
(The only non french subs for this are rather bad in their translation in both the french and the german scenes so I woulnd't recommend them as of now).
