Product Description

Product Description

Academy Award(r) nominee Johnny Depp (2003 Best Actor, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) gives his most riveting performance in this action/suspense thriller featuring a top-notchcast including John Turturro, Maria Bello, Academy Award(r) winner Timothy Hutton (1981 Best Supporting Actor, Ordinary People) and Charles S. Dutton. Following a bitter separation from his wife (Bello), famed mystery writer Mort Rainey (Depp) is unexpectedly confronted at his remote lake house by adangerous stranger named John Shooter (Turturro). Claiming Rainey has plagiarized his short story,the psychotic Shooter demands justice. When Shooter't trust anyone or anything. A shocking psychological thriller from the writer of Panic Room, David Koepp.


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

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.

I saw this movie in theater and liked it a lot, so it's no surprise that I went out and bought it today. It may not say Special Edition on the cover, but this Dvd has as many extras as most Deluxe Edtions. The Featurettes are interesting and informative and run over an hour combined. My favorite being the Secrets Revealed segment that really helps put certain things in place and make sense after viewing the film for the first time. Now to Mr. Johnny Depp! Depp has been one of my favorite actors long before Jack Sparrow came out into public view, and the performance as Mort in this little film ranks #2 of all his roles in my opinion (Right behind "Pirates of the Carribean" of couse). The supporting cast, direction, and music are very strong as well. It's just nice to see a thriller that takes its time to build up to the twisted conclusion, without the mindless gore (which at times is good) and the paper thin characters. The casual and huge Johnny Depp fans who enjoy a good psychological thriller should buy this one, everyone else should at least rent it to see what an amazing actor they have been missing.

I thought "Secret Window" was a fantastic movie. Ebert & Ropert gave the film two thumbs up and I couldn't agree more. Johnny Depp plays the lead character Mort Rainey. Mort is a novel writer who is confronted by a man named John Shooter(John Tuturro). Shooter claims that Mort stole his story and ruined the ending to it. Shooter refuses to leave Mort alone until he fixes the ending of his story. Depp is outstanding in the movie and his performance alone is enough to recommend the movie. Some have claimed the film's pace to be too slow, but I feel it is very methodically and wonderfully paced.One of Depp's brilliant lines in the movie is " It's all about the ending. Nothing matters but the ending. And this one is very good...this one is perfect." I thought that line is an excellent description of the movie's great ending and "secret" twist. I will definitely be buying this DVD when it arrives on June 22. I also strongly recommend Depp in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Blow". Depp is outstanding in both films. Secret Window..some windows should never be opened..

though it is a very different movie than both of those.still,i liked
everything about it.it's suspenseful,thrilling and
unpredictable.plus,Johnny Depp gives a masterful performance,in my
opinion.the supporting cast is also great.John Turturro,Maria
Bello,Timothy Hutton and Charles S.Dutton all put in great
performances.i have only seen a handful of Stephen King adaptations,but
probably half of those have been unimpressive to me.like most king
movies,this one has its weirdness.nothing is straightforward or as it
seems.but i felt this one had a bit more depth of character and
story,which is refreshing.there are a few twists and turns and some red
herrings to lead you in the wrong direction.i was kept guessing to the
very end. i thought this movie was great,though like i said i didn't
like it quite as much as two previous King adaptations,such as The
Shawshank redemption and The Green Mile,which are masterpieces,in my
opinion.still,Secret Window is a right up there.for me,Secret Window is
a 4.5/5

Overall this film kept me right on the edge of the seat, and that's why I give it the four stars. Jonny Depp was great in this movie. He looked exactly like a writer- tousled hair, hilariously tattered robe, the works. He worked the part of a lonely writer perfectly. He played this 'lonely writer' who is obviously still tortured about his wife's infidelity and their divorce they are finishing through, and then to add to his problems a guy comes to his door and claims he stole his story. Throughout the entire movie I was kept in suspense, because I honestly didn't know what was going to be the solution of this plot.
And yet the solution is where I dropped one star. The ending was a total killer for me. I don't know why, but in the back of my mind I made the assumption that this guy accusing Depp's character of plagirism was a lot more than he turned out to be. I won't ruin the ending for people who haven't seen it, but trust me, the ending is not explosive, not surprising, not anything. It's just a dull 'oh yeah' kind of ending. But all in all, the beginning and middle of this film are gripping and awesome, so the movie's worth that much to watch it.
