The Secret

Director: Vincent Perez

Actors: David Duchovny, Olivia Thirlby, Lili Taylor

Review: A movie following the lives of a husband, wife and daughter. This movie is a horror cum thriller taking on the phenomenon of death, wherin the souls interchange with the bodies and in the end returns to its sole owner.

A very touching movie of the loss of a husband's wife and a mother's daughter and a daughter's mother. (Complicated, right?). As the movie progresses, we get to see in-depth into the life of each and how it inter-connects in the end in a tearful moment. Originally a Japanese movie, remade in French and English later.

The movie, even though not quite popular, is a movie that captures one's attention when one sits and starts watching it, even accidentally (That's how is saw it...accidentally).

A charming movie, worth watching once. Truly makes us want to cling on to the ones we love even more.

Rating: **
