About the Movie
Naomi, the brilliant and pious daughter of an ultra orthodox rabbi finds herself at a crossroads of life choices when her mother dies and she is expected to immediately marry her father's prodigy. Distressed yet determined, she begs that her father allow her one year to study at a women's religious seminary in Safed, the birthplace of the Kabala in order to prepare herself for the sacrifices she will make as a wife. Her father relents and Naomi's life begins to take an unexpected turn. Devote but lively, Naomi and her new friend Michelle befriend a beautiful, mysterious older woman, Anouk, (Fanny Ardant) who is ill and living nearby who may or may not be Jewish, and may have committed a crime of passion. Naomi devises a series of rituals which will somehow “purify” Anouk and purge her of her sins, but as these stretch the borders of Jewish law they must be kept secret. Eventually this journeys into the forbidden and leads to a growing attraction between the two girls and more crossroads are faced. The Secrets presents the complexities of a religious lifestyle in a vibrant environment of youth, rebellion and desire.
Wow ... Still wiping the tears. Great actress!
I love this movie
It is really one of my favorites, very, VERY, powerful.
Really deep - WOW
This movie really dealt with a lot of various issues from traditional thinking, gender roles, sexual orientation, religion, cultural taboos and wove into a rich tapestry of human emotions like judgement, love, betrayal, reconciliation and kindness. It really makes you think from different perspectives of the human condition, including forgiveness.
I think it was well done.
