Product Description

Amazon.ca

Scénariste de quelques-uns des plus grands succès d’Hollywood (Mission impossible, Le Parc jurassique), David Koepp se lance pour la quatrième fois dans la réalisation en s’appuyant sur une valeur sûre : l’adaptation d’une nouvelle de Stephen King : Secret Window, Secret Garden. Un making-of, 4 scènes supprimées et un story-board animé complètent le DVD.

Mort Rainey est un écrivain de romans policiers à succès. Mais son divorce doublé d’une panne d’inspiration le conduit à vivre reclus dans son chalet au fond des bois. Jusqu’à ce qu’un homme, John Shooter, frappe à sa porte en l’accusant de plagiat.

Efficace, Fenêtre secrète applique consciencieusement, mais de façon parfois un peu convenue, la recette du thriller en introduisant habilement quelques coups de stress et en nous faisant partager l’angoisse de son personnage principal. Plus proche néanmoins de Misery (Rob Reiner) que de Shining (Stanley Kubrick), le film explore une des plus fréquentes préoccupations de King : les démons intérieurs de l’écrivain. Jouant avec nos nerfs et profitant de l’interprétation ironique de Johnny Depp et de celle, inquiétante, de John Turturro, le film tire également une certaine qualité esthétique de ses décors lumineux, tournés dans le Québec automnal. Comptant sur un rebondissement final inattendu et intéressant, Fenêtre secrète fait partie de ces films parfaits pour jouer à se faire peur. – Helen Faradji

5.0 out of 5 stars 101 stress relief Nov. 18 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I have to say with a film based on Stephen King writing and starring Johnny Depp and with a title like "Secret window" I was ready for a spooky Alice in Wonderland. What I got was a lesson in stress control and problem management. I will defiantly keep this film in mind if I ever find myself in a similar situation.

Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp) is a writer going through a divorce. He retreats to his cabin in the back woods to gather his thoughts and write his next book. There he is confronted by a clearly deranged visitor, John Shooter (John Turturro) who accuses Mort of plagiarizing; if Mort does not confess then John will get him and his little dog too.

How will Mort handle this? Will he get Shooter before getting shot? Will his divorce be settled in an amicable way?

One thing I found in common with Mort is I also like corn however I prefer it raw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Did It Again Nov. 30 2012

Based on a Stephen King novel, this is a thriller that twists and turns and you really get lost in it.

I wasn't really expecting much from this film, judging from the tepid previews. But being a very big fan of director-writer David Koepp's other projects, I at least thought it just might surpass my hopes and surprise me. Wrong!!!
Why was this predictable, simple-minded Stephen King story produced as a movie? The first thing any intelligent person watching it will realize that the hick-character of "Shooter" (John Turturro) could not POSSIBLY be the writer he claims to be, and Rainey (Johnny Depp) is far too bright not to realize this from the outset. Then there's the age-old suspense film question: why doesn't the protagonist just LEAVE??? To make an audience buy into the victim's inablity to behave with plain old common sense, the suspense-horror genre requires strong writing, acting, and direction to make it believable. Koepp missed the boat this time.
You can figure out the plot of this turkey in the first 45 minutes, guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Depp makes the movie! April 27 2004
Format:DVD
I have to wonder if this film would have been nearly as good without the likes of Johnny Depp in the key role of Mort Rainey.Thankfully we don't have to know. I have heard the phrase recently on the title of an article about Depp..."a little Depp will do ya" well, in this case, "a lotta Depp will do as well and quite well"! I became an instant fan of his and the movie after seeing his work in "Pirates of the Caribbean",but, it was this film that made me truly appreciate what a gifted actor Depp truly is and it forced me to go back and rewatch his other work I had seen and watch his work I had not seen. All of which I was never disappointed. Let me just say I loved this movie. I stayed intrigued throughout the entire film and the ending did surprise me unlike some other reviews I have read who seemed disappointed. Don't let the fact that it was only in theaters for 2 or 3 weeks fool you. Its very good. I had not read the book because I really don't care for much of Stephen King's books so maybe that was a plus for me...I don't know. But this movie I take exception to even though I understand there were a few changes. It was "based" on the novella though keep in mind. Depp commanded the screen which is good since there were many many scenes with just him or with him and his dog Chico. I was never bored watching him play Mort. He was quirky, strange, an unpredictable and at many times very very humorous. In fact I chuckled and laughed quite often and was thoroughly entertained as well.Isn't that why we usually see a movie? Depp spilled out his lines as if he really was Mort. This could have been a character you didn't like,but, you did like him..you couldn't help yourself. Depp became the character ,which he usually does in all of his films, and you believe him. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A Creepy Thriller June 26 2004
Format:DVD
Johnny Depp stars in the movie, based on Stephen King's short story "Secret Window, Secret Garden". The movie starts with Depp's character walking in on his wife having an affair and he goes crazy. The story begins six months later. He is in the process of divorcing his wife and lives alone in a isolated cabin near a lake. Depp plays an author, Mort, and the movie starts slowly as he tries to write a story and talks to his dog. A stranger comes to the door claiming that Mort stole his story and Depp dismisses him. The guy keeps popping up and claiming Mort stole his story and violent things start to happen. Mort's dog is found dead, then his old house that his wife lives in is burned down. Mort tries to talk to a sheriff and hires a private investigator but still the mysterios stranger Jake Shooter continues to confront him. The movie doesn't sound special but it is well made with an excellent ending. The actors say on the behind the scenes footage that also comes on the DVD that as they read the script they were completely suprised by the ending. Mort is a very interesting and unusual character. He has become isolated since he and his wife seperated. He has weird dream scenes and is paranoid. He thinks to himself but refers to himself as you. He is a great character well played by Depp. This movie was unexpectedly good and one of the best movies of the year in my opinion.

This movie is so predicatable and gets boring after a while. Depp's acting is the best part of this mess.

After seeing the previews for this movie, I didn't really want to watch it. But it had a few surprises in store and was well done. Certainly worth watching.
