Movie Reviews

Secrets of the Heart
lillirod | Guaynabo, PR USA | 10/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like European films, you'll love this one! I saw it a couple of years ago at an International Film Festival and loved it. This is type of movie that explores human emotions: deep, slow paced and sometimes funny. Filmed in Spain in a small provincial town in the 1960's, it tells the story of nine-year-old boy, curious about the secrets enclosed in a room that is always kept locked: the room where his father was found dead. Through his relationship with his immediate family: mother, brother, aunt, uncle, he comes up with the answer.Worth seeing!"
Pleasant quiet movie

"A pleasure to watch.The main character, a nine year old child appears in every single scene as he discovers sexuality in the adult members of his familiy. The VDV does not contain any features and the subtitles cannot be turned off."

"This is an elegant and poignant tale of the mysterious and magical adult world as seen through the eyes of Javi, a nine year old child, growing up in a small provincial town in the 1960's.

Javi believes he can hear the voices of the dead and that they whisper to him their secrets, which were left unspoken in life. At his mother's house in the mountains, he is fascinated by the room in which his father died and which his mother carefully keeps locked. But, Javi learns that the living have their secrets as well.

As Javi begins to comprehend these secrets of the heart, he takes us on a journey where we are offered "The irresistible opportunity to see the world once again through the innocent eyes of a child."

There is no nudity in this movie.

Secrets of the Heart a moving heartwarmer.
