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 dHollywood (Mission impossible, Le Parc jurassique), David Koepp se lance pour la quatrième fois dans la réalisation en sappuyant sur une valeur sûre : ladaptation dune 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 dune panne dinspiration le conduit à vivre reclus dans son chalet au fond des bois. Jusquà ce quun homme, John Shooter, frappe à sa porte en laccusant 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 langoisse 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 lécrivain. Jouant avec nos nerfs et profitant de linterprétation 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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

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
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.
