Directed by Beatle photographer Robert Freeman, Secret World looks great. Freeman knows how to frame a shot, consistently posing his actors in complimentary settings. Unfortunately, the story is so wispy that it almost disappears. Jacqueline Bisset plays a young Englishwoman hired by a French patrician to care for his son, a mournful sort who potters around in a holy old brown pullover for the entire film as he falls in love with the new 'older woman' in his life. She's trying to maintain a relationship with a dashing young Frenchman with a sexy sportscar. There's not much more too it than that--so enjoy the visuals and Bisset, who probably never looked better!
