UN SECRET tells the story of François, his strained early relationship with his parents and the family secret revealed to him when he is 14. Crossing decades and folding in several narratives about childhood, romance and the Nazi occupation of France, this moving and visually impressive film confirms Claude Miller’s reputation as one of France’s finest directors.
