The Flower of My Secret (1995)

Pedro Almodóvar directs Marisa Paredes, Juan Echanove and Carme Elías in this unashamed “Woman’s Picture” where an anonymous best selling romance writer tries to write more literary work while coming to terms with the real state of her cold, distant marriage.

A weaker Almodóvar. The melodrama lacks spark while the literary intrigue feels wetter rather than meta. For fans only.
