Critic Reviews for The Flower of My Secret
Though The Flower of My Secret is a slight work, it is a pleasing return to form.
The movie is full of familiar Almodovar fare, but it feels freshened.
An intimate, beautifully wrought work, it reflects a new maturity in Almodovar's work and is one of his best pictures.
It's bland as often as it is affecting, and presents little that's new or original.
Likely to be disappointing to Almodovar's admirers, and inexplicable to anyone else.
Audience Reviews for The Flower of My Secret
Minor but not less entertaining Almodóvar, filled with his usual visual flair and bizarre and soapoperarish trademarks.
A romance novel writer attempts to save her failing marriage while pursued by her new editor. This Almodovar film is simple and simplistic melodrama. There are all the elements: an overly emotional protagonist who obsesses over the wrong man and tries to kill herself, a family drama with a dying mother, and some coincidences too coincidental to be believed. All of the film's flaws notwithstanding, I found Almodovar's dialogue less stilted and her characters a little more realistic than I normally do, so there were some diamonds in the rough. But overall, it's mostly rough.
A little more 'mainstream' than the Almodóvar I've come to know and love, but still very enjoyable.
