Storyline

Michael Hunter's lovely, beloved 17 year-old son Kyle committed suicide, although he was in therapy for depression. This ruins Michael's marriage, his daughter Shelly moves in with her mother. He stops treating patients in order to write and teach Psychotherapy, until many years later when a student gets him fascinated by the case of Thomas 'Tommy' Caffey. He was about to be released at his 18th birthday from the closed 'boys school' he was placed into after his father, Joseph, was put into jail for beating his adulterous mother to death. Michael feels that Tommy carries a big chip on his shoulder, ignores that Shelly fell for him at first sight, but is mesmerized by Tommy's resemblance (purposefully enhanced) to Kyle. There is also a revealing meeting with Tommy's dad in jail. Written by KGF Vissers

A "must-see", just to witness the struggle
26 April 2002 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

`A shrink trying to save a psycho kid,' one would say about The Unsaid because it seems slightly so. It is about a psychiatrist called Michael Hunter whose son commits suicide. After his son's death, Hunter loses his life spirit and stops taking patients. He feels guilty of his son's tragic death and never overcomes it. One day, one of his former students asks him to take a look at a case of a boy, who has a corrupted past. Dr Hunter handles the case of this boy who refuses to be in peace with his past. The boy reminds Hunter of his dead son and this is a challenge for him: he needs to be able to put aside his feelings for his son and handle this patent. This is a story of a father and a psychiatrist struggling to overcome his guilt about the death of his son.

This film is full of emotions and the tension increases towards the end. I think it is a `must see' for the sake of the passion put into this work. If you are a real movie-goer, do not miss it!

Andy Garcia (Hunter) has an impressive performance in this movie. He is very realistic as the man of the struggles.

The Unsaid has an amazing soundtrack, which is speaks to you even if you have not seen the film.

It has been three days that I have seen this movie and I am still thinking about it. You feel such sympathy towards Dr. Hunter that you can not get it over with. It has a nice scenario, I must admit: there are unpredictable scenes which make you keep thinking ` It can't be true!'
