I wonder if this movie was the fist one I saw directed by Pedro Almodovar. At least, it was definitely the first I saw in the movie theater and I even saw it when it was released. To be honest, I was rather disappointed by the whole thing. I mean, back then, I wasn’t really familiar with this director but since I kept hearing he was one of the best directors in the world, I had some rather high ... read more

What a strange film this is for a provocateur like Pedro Almodóvar. The Flower of My Secret is so tranquil and subdued that it nearly tips into the middlebrow provincialism that he so proudly flaunted before. There’s still a series of great female roles, populated by some of his favorite actresses, and here is a transitional film that would make a way for his richer, more mature works like All ... read more

The Flower of My Secret

“What a strange film this is for a provocateur like Pedro Almodóvar. The Flower of My Secret is so tranquil and subdued that it nearly tips into the middlebrow provincialism that he so proudly flaunted before. There’s still a series of great female roles, populated by some of his favorite actresses, and here is a transitional film that would make a way for his richer, more mature works like All About My Mother, Volver, and Bad Education.   What really manifests throughout is how the entire film feels like an artist doing warm-up exercises for those later films. While it’s always a joy to watch Marisa Paredes tear into Almodóvar’s words, there just isn’t enough energy elsewhere to match her Douglas Sirkian heroine cracking up under artistic unfulfillment and sexual repression. ” read more

“I wonder if this movie was the fist one I saw directed by Pedro Almodovar. At least, it was definitely the first I saw in the movie theater and I even saw it when it was released. To be honest, I was rather disappointed by the whole thing. I mean, back then, I wasn’t really familiar with this director but since I kept hearing he was one of the best directors in the world, I had some rather high expectations. Basically, after making a serie of over-the-top wild comedies, this movie was Almodovar’s first attempt to make something slightly more serious but, since it was his first attempt, it only partially worked, I’m afraid. I mean, as usual with this director, the characters were quite eccentric but even though they were fairly interesting, I can’t say I really cared about what they” read more
