[NEW FILMS]"Himitsu" (Secret)

Drama / 119 min. / Japanese -- Opens Wednesday


A mother and a daughter are rushed to an emergency room, battling for their lives, after being seriously injured in a bus accident. Haiskega (Kobayashi Kaoru), the father, is devastated.

But then a miracle happens -- the mother's soul moves into her daughter's body (Ryoko Hirosue). Or is that a miracle?

Haiskega doesn't know how to deal with his wife's soul being in his daughter's body, nor does his wife want to attend high school all over again.

"Himitsu" was a big sensation in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan when it was released in 1999. Based on a popular Japanese novel, it received various awards and went on to several prestigious international film festivals.
