A funeral digs up it's own little secrets.
25 April 2007 | by (home of 2000 Olympics) – See all my reviews

A delightful French comedy from Quebec, which brings an entire family to a funeral in which past memories are revealed through various relations to unravel past secrets.

Entertaining and visually engaging, "The family secret" moves along with it's great use of colours, music and a script that takes many twists and turns, which like it's main character leaves the audience in the dark as to what the family secret really is.

I met the Director while on holiday in Vietnam and she told me that the story was based on a event that happened in her own life. I guess real life is definitely stranger that fiction.
