The Flower of My Secret (1995)

***½
Spain

The first time that most people picked up on hints of a meditative nature behind the mad, frantic genius of Pedro Almodóvar was this atypically talky tale of the emancipation of one hormonal writer of glossy romance paperbacks. The magnificent, ever elegant Marisa Paredes takes on the lead role with terrific command, along with brazen support from two inimitable staples of the Almodóvar pantheon, Rossy de Palma and Chus Lampreave.

wr/dir: Pedro Almodóvar
cast: Marisa Paredes, Juan Echanove, Carmen Elías, Rossy de Palma, Chus Lampreave, Kiti Manver, Imanol Arias
