yes, flash movies in the browser can send and receive data to perl scripts (CGI) on the server. consider flash like you would a standard HTML form. flash takes in data, manipulates it if necessary, and can send to a server-side script (via GET or POST) where the perl script can process and also write back to the flash movie if desired.

a working example of a flash and cgi formmailer:
