Secrets revealed at a funeral
25 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie was hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. It was an amazing movie. My mother doesn't normally watch movies from Quebec but she loved this one. The actors are really great and energetic. The story was really well written and the jokes really well thought. It's not a predictable movie. It's a better movie than the American movies that we are used to seeing. If there's a movie worth seeing, it's Le secret de ma mere. You won't be regretting it. There isn't much that I could say about the story without spoiling it, so I won't give a summary of the movie. I am such that this movie is going to win lots of awards. If I could, I would go watch it again and again. I can't wait until it comes out on DVD.
