    Description: An eerie little gem that keeps reinventing itself. You've never quite seen a film like this. It takes a while to get into the story, but the payoff is well worth it. The less said about the plot the better. It's a vibrant, spooky comic book come to life with a wonderful offbeat sensibility. Visible Secret has all the best elements of The X-Files, Sixth Sense, Jacob's Ladder and Scooby Doo. I'm definitely ready to explore more of Ann Hui's earlier work.

    Director Ann Hui paints many surreal images that range from slightly grisly to beautifully melancholy. The eloquently inventive framing from Arthur Wong's crisply dusky cinematography sets the dreamy tone and a creepy ambiance settles into Tommy Wai Kai-Leung's stirringly unhinged music score. Make-up is well-displayed and special effects admirably creative and fitting to the style of the film.

    The two leads are equally splendid with the extremely wonderful Shu Qi's vividly plucky turn as June and Eason Chan's perfectly sombre performance as Peter. The support cast are reasonably low-key and more there for the story's progression, but what is offered up is colourful bunch with the likes of Sam Lee, Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, James Wong, Yiu-Cheung Lai, Jo Kuk and a memorable Tony Liu. Everyone's performances gel together, to make believable and emotional ties. Highly recommended.
