I know Jay Chou's Secret!

Do not read this post if you haven't watch his lastest movie, Secret - 不能說的秘密 in cinema!

"Follow the notes upon a journey
At first sight marks one's destiny
Once the voyage comes to an end
Return lies within hasty key"




This movie was directed and starred by Jay Chou. I really like this movie besides that its Jay's production, its because it plain sweeeeeeet. Its a sweet love story, touching, a slow-mving story that might bore you, but not me! And no no, there is no spoiler in this post actually, just wanna say, how much I like the movie! :)

I like how Jay injected the humour element in the movie in small little things. I like how he made the movie so detailed. I really like like how Jay showed off his piano skills in the movie. I like how he made the story unexpected, based on the movie poster. No no! Do not judge this movie by its poster. It was made to be brownish, yellowish or you may call old, out-dated because of the theme. You will understand if you really watched the movie.



In the movie, Jay paid tribte to Chopin. There was several occasions where Jay paid tribute to his favourite composer. Right at the beginning of the movie, during lesson, Chopin was being taught in class. Chopin was described as a gifted musician and composer. Besides, there were 2 paintings in the music room that were supposedly Chopin and his lover. The conversation between Lun (Jay) & Yu (Rain) were about Chopin and his lover. Lun lamented that the two eventually parted ways. However, Yu seemed envious that the couple was able to spend 10 years together, which to the couple, was possibly a long time. Jay may have added this element (Chopin & lover) because the 10 years was the period of time Chopin produced his most outstanding work. Other than that, Qin Yi (Sky) carried Chopin’s manuscript and kept it in the locker. And one of the pieces used during the piano battle was Chopin’s Waltzes with Yu Hao (Howe).



Talking about his piano skills, it was damn good! Besides the piano battleship he had with Howe; that cant be explain in words, there was a scene where Jay & Rain were playing (crossed hands) a duet when their music teacher walked in on them. He also played on 2 different piano with his left & right hand (cool!). And also a scene where Jay closed his eyes and played single-handedly on the piano behind him (lagi cool!).

I also like the way Jay talked. Playful and young. Not to mention that he is OLD now, but really mar ;p And I like that, he actually danced in the movie. Not once, but twice! Very cute lor. But the only thing I dont like in this movie, was the computr graphics. Abit lousy! Hahahaha. Maybe because after we've the movie, Transformer, we cannot accept things that are worse than that. ;p I minus some points of the movie from there. But besides that, everything is great to me! I'm not biased ok. :)


I think I'll end this post, I need to rush off to work already. Dear readers, go and watch it in the cinema okay? There you go with a trailer! Cioas!
