Secret Rendezvous
29 June 2004 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Six years before she made a big splash on the screen with her famous wet t-shirt scene in the movie "The Deep" in 1977 gorgeous Jackie Bisset showed off her natural and impressive physical attributes in a little known English soap opera-like film called "Secrets". In the film Jackie played a frustrated and ignored young wife who's husband is going through a major career change from being an actor which was going nowhere for him into the new and up and coming and growing world of computer sciences in the early 1970's.

Jenny, Jackie Bisset, going to the laundromat one afternoon with her young daughter Judy, Tarka Kings, takes a walk in the park feeling very depressed over her marriage with her husband Allen,Robert Powell, who's been obsessed studying for a computer aptitude test that he's to take that same afternoon.

In the park Jenny runs into an eccentric textile millionaire Raoul, Per Oscarsson, who Jenny reminds him of his recently deceased wife. Jenny at first rebuffs his advances but she later goes along with him to his mansion where he tells her the story of his wife dying from cancer just after she gave birth to their child.

Then from just what was a friendly talk and get-together Jenny and Raoul get into a torrid and steamy sexual gymnastic affair that rises the theater temperature some 30 degrees. Meanwhile back at the testing site Allan turns on as well as him getting turned on in return by Beatrice, Shirley Knight, who was testing him on his computer skills. Beatrice happily found out that Allan has a much better aptitude in the hot and sizzling science of reproductive biology as well as the technology of DNA splicing then he had in the cold impersonal and unfeeling world of computer engineering.

Even little Judy developed some kind of relationship at the laundromat, while her mother Jenny was out in the park where she met and had an affair with Raoul, with Raymond, Martin C. Thurley. Raymond turns out to be some kind of flower freak who took Judy on his motorbike to his home. It's there where he introduced her into the wonderful world of botany by showing her his greenhouse and even gave her a large potted plant as a gift to take with her back home.

The whole story of "Secrets" takes place on just one afternoon with both Jenny and Allan as well as little Judy back home after adventures in the world of fate and predestination. It seemed that Jenny and Allan knew that each had an affair that day and that those affairs brought them back together, and as the movie ends we see Judy looking lovingly at the potted plant that Raymond gave her.

Intriguing little movie about human relationships in the early 1970's with Miss Bisset's presents in the film making "Secrets" both interesting as well as exciting to watch.
