Secretos Compartidos (Shared Secrets) is full of suspense, intrigue, and many hidden secrets to spice up the screen. Brian de Palma's movie "Blow out" meets "Jack The Ripper". The movie is based on the book called " The fisher and the Clown" by Leandro Siciliano, one of the screenwriters. The movie starts right away with the first killing of a woman been followed from the supermarket to her house.The serial killer Vicente Duarte (Victor Laplace- Best actor at the Havana Film Festival)is obsessed with women behavior and he is disturbed by how they dress on a daily basis and show some of their body parts in public. The characters are real, in a real city (Buenos Aires), with real feelings, surrounded by real situations. In Argentina is very normal to show some skin and dress very aggressive. It's part of their life. the killer(the fisher) decides to go hunting for girls on every Wednesday and one day meets another men (the clown)who shares the experiences of how to pick up girls. Obviously, the killer tells his killing stories as if going out on a real date. The pace of the film is good, the special effects are nicely done and the music for the film is excellent. A must see film if you like movies from Argentina and Latin American movies in general. Just don't watch it on a Wednesday, OK.
