Editorial Reviews

When filmmaker Mariana Otero was a young child, her mother disappeared. The family told Mariana and her sister, Isabel, that their mother had gone to work in Paris, but later admitted that she was dead. Twenty-five years later, Otero s father reveals the truth about her mother, confessing the secret he alone had carried for so long her mother had died in a back-alley abortion. HISTORY OF A SECRET moves the viewer emotionally while simultaneously raising social and political questions.

Special Features: Abortion from the 60s to Now; About the Secret; The Work of Clotilde Vautier; Trailer; Interview with Director, Scene Selection

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I don't know if this was a movie or someone with a camera and cash decide to do a movie. It does not make any sense from beginning to end. I tried to follow the movie to see where it does make sense, I could not find it. Between the dialogues between sisters, fathers and the visit to their childhood house it's all doll, boring and nothing to learn or gain
