Secret Sunshine on IMDb
Secret Sunshine is the Chinese translation for "Milyang," the name of the town where Shin-ae (Jeon Do-yeon) and her seven-year-old son are moving to start a new life. Shin-ae's husband has recently died in a car accident, and Milyang was the home town he always yearned to return to. Secret sunshine is also a metaphor for everything that is unseen: love, faith, loss. Director Lee Chang-dong has a novelist's eye for detail and hidden meaning; he guides us through the dramatic twists in the young widow's life with exquisite care. Shin-ae's story is full of precious quotidian moments and incredible transformations, and I don't want to spoil the pleasures of discovering both.
