He continues playing as the building crashes down around him; just before he is smashed by a wrecking ball, he plays the last note. Story needs some thinking to be able to understand it fully. The biggest deal behind Secret is that it's probably better than one expects it to be. The wonderful shots and the music make me award the movie with a rating that may seem slightly generous. Visually it is more than satisfying.
Interestingly enough, there are also some special effects, that are all executed very well. It is at times difficult for her to keep that grip; but, for Ben, the possessiveness he feels toward his wife's soul in his daughter's body threatens to completely overwhelm his life as well as hers, with nearly disastrous results. However, Xiaoyu seemed envious that the couple was able to spend 10 years together, which for the couple, was possibly a long time. I can't go into much details, as I would be spoiling much of the story, but there is a certain scene that is obviously a homage to a movie from George Pal of the year 1960. Meaning that a different person could see the time traveler every time they travel through time. Despite previous experience in filming , Chou admits that films are much more challenging due to storyline complexity and time constraints. When she initially appears, she acts too much like an idealized good girl flirt to be real; it's like she's some manufactured idea of what perfect high school romance should be.
Anyway, he plays his part once again exceptionally well, depicting the caring father of Jay for a second time already. However, the movie had not mentioned how early he had returned and if Xiaoyu knew about Xianglun. In another scene, Xiaoyu's mother said that her daughter was panting and need to get some rest, she told Xianglun to not disturb her. . But the film ultimately doesn't adhere to its convictions, eventually twisting events to fit desired emotions and skirting around the rules that they've laid out for us. Classic fans will absolutely get their money's worth thanks to many piano pieces.
The is an annual sponsored by , a brand of and sleepwear. She went back to 1979, wrote her last words on the desk in her classroom before dying because of an asthma attack. In class a few days later, Xianglun passes a note to Xiaoyu asking her to meet him at the practice rooms. The critic regards the film as a nice, romantic, fairly good picture and that Jay Chou directs with an able hand. Her experience helps her to learn a lot about the previously unknown to her life her daughter was living and helps her to see how harrowing a teen's life can be in these times, as she struggles to walk the tightrope many teens must negotiate.

This is due to your standard crossed wires and mistaken circumstances, but the misinterpreted event is enough to throw a massive crush-killing wrench into their puppy love. Most likely not exactly a film for the male audience, but the wonderful pictures and the warm atmosphere of the movie will soon win you over for sure. It will not affect everything immediately. Director Jay Chou obviously didn't leave anything to chance and makes his movie shine in a fantastic light. Since Dayong was the first person she saw, Dayong was able to see her. Get out there to see a show or to take in a concert or to visit a museum. Naturally, Xianglun's father thinks the story is ridiculous, and believes she is suffering from some mental illness, a sentiment quickly becoming shared by the entire class of 1979, as well as Xiaoyu's mother.
On artifice alone, the film is aces, serving up beautiful art direction, cinematography and music. In the opening scene, the year is 1999, and Xianglun is seen transferring to the famous music school, Tamkang Danjiang Secondary School, where his father is a teacher. Return lies within hasty keys. After class, Xianglun asks Xiaoyu about the song; she tells him it is a secret that cannot be told. Perhaps the blood or tear had the same effect. If we want to change the present, we need someone to return to the parallel time-space line to change the past objects to affect the present time and space. Halfway through the performance, Xianglun sees Xiaoyu by the door, and they share a smile before she quickly leaves.
Review by Kozo: Jay Chou's directorial debut is named Secret - which is a dead giveaway right there. Nonetheless, despite all that Jay Chou manages that we are crossing our fingers for him, even though the finale may seem a bit contrived. While the premise of the story may not be entirely original there are many who may compare it with Il Mare or its Hollywood remake - The Lake House , frankly speaking, the manner in which the plot unfolds is relatively engaging and has kept me glued to the screen from the opening credits to the closing credits. It will be the image of Chou playing the piano one-handed, playing two pianos at the same time, and playing the piano with his upturned face in dream-like bliss. Xianglun begins to have flashbacks to all the times they hung out together, but in those memories, she is missing and he is alone.
Shortly thereafter, he meets Rain Guey Lun-Mei in the piano room, with whom he instantly falls in love. Even if you hate soft music, once you try to listen to its music, it would begin to wear down your defenses. The two begin a cute, casual romance that's defined by secrets. Just look at the special effects or pay attention to the ringing of the school bell. There's a manufactured quality to the dialogue that makes their supposed love a bit unconvincing, and without more acute emotions the film begins to drag. There are in fact lots of logical gaps, that could ruin the viewing experience when reflecting too much.
Every track in the album is amazing and gripping. In fact, this part of the story is what's making the film so appealing and somewhat special in the end. Jay Chou had also taken this opportunity and a great one as well with music being centerpiece of this story in his directorial debut to pay a small tribute to one of his favourite composers, Chopin, wherever possible. Five months later, graduation day had arrived, with Xianglun set to perform on stage at the graduation ceremony. Chou's directorial touch is patient and slightly melancholy and reflective. Throughout his study, he considered the role luck or serendipity had played in the success of his interviewees.
Let's cut straight to the chase then: is Secret any good? Amazingly, that gambit is more successful than not, and Guey Lun-Mei practically drags the film across the finish line herself. He also delivers a nice story, which can serve with an interesting twist, and at the same time he also finds the space to advertise himself and his musical genius, which he doesn't just show in the many piano pieces he is playing, but also in the soundtrack for which he also wrote some pieces. The romance is budding, but laced with periods of time where Xiaoyu skips class and doesn't show up for days. Victoria's Secret uses the show to promote and market its goods in high-profile settings. Filming began in January 2007 and was completed in March. The film, Secret, begins with Lun played by Jay Chou, who also directed the film being led by a mysterious and alluring piano piece to an old dilapidated room in his new school Tamkang Secondary School.
