Secret (2007)

INTRODUCTION:

After watching the movie, you have to admit that Jay Chou is talented. It has never come to my mind that the R&B/rap singer Jay Chou would make such an extraordinary fantasy/romance movie (and as his debut!), but beyond everyone's expectation he did, showing the world his talent as a fine director. But to Jay ,I have to admitted he won my respect. I am really longing for his next work. The story is beginning with a romantic affection between two students in high school. The girl has a secret that is shown at the end of the story. The color of the movie is so good that I am sunk in it. I watched this film twice and I completely understood the whole plot during the second time. The structure of the film is contrived carefully. The truth is so moving with the thrilling rhythm of the secret music. 

The whole story is filled with love, passion for music and excellent piano pieces. My favorite parts were the piano battle, as well as the piano duet. I thought that Jay Chou's piano-playing was fabulous. He, indeed, lived up to his label as "musical genius". Overall the movie was great. I watched it twice, and both times I still cried and laughed the same as before. Although I'm merely fifteen and hence my mentalities may be a cry away from some readers and movie-watchers here, I think that this show is one that you should catch. You will not regret it! :)
