Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard - their secret hiding place - and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released. More than sixty years later, Julia stumbles on the terrible secret that the home Sarah's family was forced to leave is about to become her own. Julia comes across a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah and changes the way she sees the world.

  1. This version had the most horrendous subtitling I have ever encountered! Some highlights include "Mais elle ne vous a jamais fait signe de vie?" (She never showed a sign of life?), being translated as: "She never had a life farming?" As well as multiple typos, word for word translations, and just really strange wording. It really took away from the charm of the film, and seemed to worsen as the film went on.

  2. Bizarre! I can't even think of how someone mistook sign of life for farming, lol.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.
