LITTLE SECRET is a short, suspenseful drama about a fifteen year old boy and his inner struggles. A son tells his mother an innocent lie as an excuse. We've all covered things up, but what happens when the consequences begin to snowball, and every minute it becomes harder and harder to take back the lie. Little Secret is inspired by a true story that happened in April 2012 in the Czech Republic and became a national scandal and media sensation for weeks. It started a huge racist backlash in the country.Written by
A teenager. An accident. A lie covering it. And the effect. A real case but not this status is the most important. Essential is the beautiful storytelling. The cinematography, the performances, the tension, the pieces of a sort of puzzle, the atmosphere, the portrait of complicity between Tomas and his friend, the silence between Tomas and his mother. A film who I love. For the precise grace, wise in profound sense, of exploration of each side of problem.
