This is not a typical World War II story.  Un Secret is a tale of the human heart - the exploration of a dark family secret and a story of passionate love: it's about lust, jealousy and betrayal set in ruthless times.  Based on the autobiographical book by Philippe Grimbert, Un Secret is the true story of a French-Jewish family, as told through the eyes of Francois.

Director Claude Miller sets his film across several timelines.  It begins in 1955 with Francois shown as the only child of an athletic father who's clearly disappointed with his scrawny son and the boy's own imagined history of his mother and father's romance.  On Francois' fifteenth birthday, a family friend's shocking revelations finally enable the young boy to move on and build his life.  The film then jumps to 1985 with the adult Francois narrating the discovery of his parents' disturbing, unpredictable secret, which silently eats into the relationships between the central characters.

"Un Secret has a vaguely dream-like feel, and recreates the period as only the French can do.  The cast is pure perfection and the attention to detail immaculate….  It's a tragic and depressing tale, but it lingers in your mind for hours.  See it with a friend - there's too much to discuss after the credits roll to see it alone."  Annette Basile,  Filmink
