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.

Secret isn't the usual romp, but it's Almodovar's most committed work in years.

If Leo appears to be doing some more or less orthodox movie-style suffering -- crying jags, a suicide attempt and the like -- perhaps that's just what she's supposed to be doing.

It's a witty, intelligent scramble, and it's beautifully mounted.

It's bland as often as it is affecting, and presents little that's new or original.

Though Almodovar touches on many of his favorite absurdities, he does so with surprising subtlety.
