Un Secreto de Esperanza
10 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is, frankly, one of the great movies of all times. It's worthy of being labeled a classic. It can live forever. It's never going to go out of style. And it's for everyone. That's the shortest report I can give you. Un Secreto de Esperanza is magical. The acting is exquisite. It's impeccable. The photography is pristine. It was a bit of a shock to see the physical beauty of Katy gone(God rest her soul now). She was always a real fine actress, as well as beautiful. Now she was a really old, wreak of a woman. But her ability to create a full-blown person was still as sharp as ever. And I know it was a magical movie about magical people because before long, somehow, she was beautiful all over again, even if she was old and out of shape. This story has layers, it has substance, it has intelligence, it has integrity, it's got so much spirit it radiates. I staggered out at the end gasping 'everyone has to see this'. I kept thinking: if enough people see this movie, we might even have world peace. You know, it just got to me, to my core. What a gift. Thank you to everyone who helped make this film. It was heaven.
