Critic Reviews for His Secret Life
It's a soapy, simplistic, but surprisingly affecting ambisexual melodrama that plays a little like Pedro Almodovar without the surreal frills.
It's a lovely film with lovely performances by Buy and Accorsi.
A warm but realistic meditation on friendship, family and affection.
Though intrepid in exploring an attraction that crosses sexual identity, Ozpetek falls short in showing us Antonia's true emotions ... But at the very least, His Secret Life will leave you thinking.
A movie that grows better by the minute.
Full of profound, real-life moments that anyone can relate to, it deserves a wide audience.
Audience Reviews for His Secret Life
Well..here's a movie that I totally did not plan on liking, but I did. Kind of alot. I instantly empathized with the wife, who was unaware of her husband's second life. I found this story of both the wife and the lover coming to terms with the false reality of their lives, and then come to value each other in ways never imaginable, very captivating. And, for some reason, I found Stefano Accorsi (the gay lover) very captivating, also. AND I thought the ending was very clever. Kudos!
Good performances and an interesting story are hampered somewhat from choppy continutity
