A murder case is complicated by the complex relationships between the victim and the main suspects. As different witnesses tell their conflicting stories, the case seems to lead to nowhere, especially when the real identity of the deceased is finally confirmed. [The Secret] is Ann Hui's debut feature and often credited as the start of the Hong Kong New Wave.


Ann HUI was born in 1947 in China and grew up in Hong Kong. Starting as a scriptwriter and director in television, Hui later became one of the leading figures in the Hong Kong New Wave in the 1980s. In 1979, her debut film, [The Secret], won Best Feature – Runner Up, Best Film Editing and Best Cinematography at the 1980 Golden Horse Awards. Her works range from social realist drama, literary adaptation and martial arts movies, and often focus on women. Hui won Best Director at the Golden Horse Awards three times and Best Director at the Hong Kong Film Awards four times.
