A lawyer faces a difficult decision when his son accidentally kills his best friend with no witnesses present, and a rift develops in his mother and father offer contradictory solutions to their sons dilemma.
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.
