The life of French-Jewish psychoanalyst Philippe Grimbert supports the saying that 'truth is stranger than fiction'. In 2004, 20 years after his parents committed suicide together by jumping off a balcony, Grimbert published a semi-autobiographical novel - Un Secret - which is told completely from memory.
Tania and Maxim, a high-voltage Jewish couple in 1950s Paris, try to instil some physical prowess in their sickly young boy, François. It is clear that he will never reach the level of his former swimming champion mother and gym fanatic father. As a means of escape, François fantasises about having a champion brother and imagines under which idyllic circumstances his handsome parents might have met. As the film progresses, it becomes clear that his daytime fantasies are both shockingly inaccurate and not far from the truth at the same time.
Much of Un Secret's tension derives from the way in which the narrative circles around the 'secret' which is handled in a very natural way. The movie never strains as the dense narrative develops; revelations accumulate; and relationships become clearer.
