La flor de mi secreto
Ana María Sánchez-Arce

Faulkner suggests, the ‘tilting crane shot … lifts the image, and our attention, up and away from the workers in order – problematically perhaps – to continue the narrative focus on Leo’s emotional slide’ ( 2013 : 213). Although La flor looks at first like a departure from Almodóvar’s distinctive aesthetic and exploration of sensitive political and social topics, it is not. The film is markedly different in tone from his comedies but satire and irony continue to support its metamodern attack on social discourses around love, gender, and social inequality. Ryan Prout
