4 out of 10 A delight
Eugene from Kerry, 26 Feb 2011
It's been a long time since I've seen a movie that surprised me. It's very well acted and the story unfolds quietly unpredictably. A movie that occupied a sizable portion of my conscience for several days after watching it. Even now there are some images that burn clear in my mind. A rarity in todays movie world.

3.5 out of 10 No Secret
James from Dublin, 06 Jul 2010
Overall a good movie. It does lack the depth that the story deserved. I got the feeling that it was commercialized for the general public, and not 100% true to the original screenplay. That being said, it was entertaining and if you're into French and/or WWII dramas, it's worth a watch.

4 out of 10 No longer a secret!
Avril from Cork, 30 Mar 2009
Film was quite good, the secret was not what I was expecting. Interesting film about choices made and the outcomes they created. Very well filmed, some really nice scenes. I would definitely reccommend this film.
