Four of director Pedro Almodovar's acclaimed films. In 'The Flower of My Secret' (1995), a woman who lives a double life finds that being a successful romantic novelist does not necessarily bring happiness. Her husband does not love her, her best friend seems distracted and her mother and sister are too busy bickering to notice that anything is wrong. She stops writing and finds solace in the bottle but finds an unlikely rescuer putting her on a collision course to a new emotional entanglement. 'Kika' (1993) is a black comedy about a make-up artist and her relationship with a philandering American writer living in Madrid. Features the usual roster of Almodovar comic stalwarts such as a rapist-thief, a narcoleptic son, a roving camerawoman voyeur, a lesbian housemaid and various transexuals, serial killers, porn stars and drug addicts - all whisked up into a gloriously immoral frothy sex comedy. In 'Law of Desire' (1987), Antonio Banderas stars as the obsessive fan of gay director Pablo Quintero (Eusebio Poncela). Carmen Maura also stars as the director's lesbian sex-changed brother in this sex, drugs and murder romp through modern Madrid. Finally, in 'Matador' (1986), Diego (Nacho Martinez) is an ex-champion bullfighter who has retired early and now runs a bullfighting school; still looking to find a 'kick', he has taken to watching sadistic videos for sexual pleasure. Maria Cardenal (Assumpta Serna) is a lawyer and Diego's number one fan; she also likes to kill men with a hairpin at the point of orgasm. The pair are destined to meet.
