Product Description

Product Description

A unconventionally bold love story. Theo and Frank are on the run from the British Navy in the 1800s. They hide in the grounds of an abandoned country house- and quickly learn that it's more than their former life they are running from. A strikingly original British queer feature, The Secret Path is like nothing you've seen before.

I have to admit that I wasn't sure as to what I was watching. I never read the synopsis first. I like to be surprised. We start out in a beautiful field with our two leads, obviously very much in love and free. We can tell by the costuming that this isn't modern day. It turns out to be in the early 1800's, although it isn't relevant to the story. What follows is a peek into a very romantic love story. No action, very low key, but enthralling nonetheless. Albeit, with a supernatural twist, described as a "ghost story".

It's nice to see a gay film where the obstacle isn't any type of homophobic lunatic, or a person or couple struggling with self-loathing. Just a beautiful couple in "anytime" and "anyplace" faced by a darkness of the supernatural type. I won't go into the supernatural element and give the plot away. I'll just say that it literally had me sitting on the edge of my seat!

The film was done on a low-budget, but I don't believe the film makes it evident. It's very lush with a beautiful soundtrack. It's a very small, but excellent cast. The two leads have amazing chemistry and are easy to watch. There are sex scenes, but done in good taste. It feels romantic and real. Not something concocted between actors that is supposed to look real, while you know the actors are choreagraphed to the hilt. The two leads, Darren Bransford and Henry Regan are very easy-on-the-eyes. Bransford playing the handsome, good-looking, and rugged Frank, and Regan playing the adorable, handsome Theo.

If you want a fast-paced film with lots of story, then this probably isn't your cup of tea. However, if you like to just lay back and watch an enjoyable slice of life from another perspective. If you want to see two handsome, masculine men who are totally in love with and support each other--with a slight supernatural twist chasing them, then should be a great film for you! I highly recommend it!

If you like to watch 2 men walking through the woods, with lots of hand held camera sequences and lots of good music; well this is for you!!!!!!!!!!! If you want something with a lot of interest, quality production and enthralling; well this is not for you!!!!!!!! This is a poor quality "Ghost Story", wjth poor quality Ghosts!! I feel my money would have been better spent on a Peperoni Pizza. Honestly it would have more bite.

Set in the 1800's we meet Theo and Frank who are `on the run from the British Navy' and wound up in the grounds of an apparently, abandoned stately home. Once there they wander about a bit, sleep a bit and use some ready made bivouacs. They also get down to some al fresco rutting. Then one of them starts to have dreams/visions of some friend they left to die. There is also some voyeur called `the gentleman', who sort of appears and makes things look a bit spooky.

I think the above pretty much covers everything. There is also improvised dialogue, which is actually not too bad. The music is rather nice too, if a bit too artsy for some of the on screen `action' and the cinematography is note worthy. The problem is lots of bugger all seems to happen. At 77 minutes it still seemed to be a bit laboured and the ending may leave some feeling a bit short changed. So not one of the best filmic experiences ever, but maybe worth a watch - just once.

Two stars for this movie were simply because it should be praised for its' ambition and nothing more - in this instance it failed to achieve.
From what I understand (the plot was hard to grasp), two lovers are hiding in the grounds of a stately home and are being haunted by somebody they abandoned once upon a time- it seems he was yanked behind a statue and one of the couple is having visions of the same happening to him.
The problem is the poor production values mean that it's hard to hear what either of them are saying most of the time, and as a result it's hard to follow what's going on. Showing 'artistic' shots of swaying trees or black and white shots of people hiding in the bushes looking menacing doesn't help explain things either.
I'm not one of those who believes a gay film *has* to have a sex scene in it to be interesting, and yes there is one in this movie (actually there are two, but it looks like they filmed one and used it twice). But to me it just looks like the characters are doing it to relieve the sense of boredom.
There could have been something interesting, but the poor sound, shaky screens and confusing plot just seem to make it more like a home made movie on a camcorder and I ended up giving my copy to the charity shop.

Oh boy....where do I begin? Having read a number of reasonably positive reviews on here, I decided to rent this through LoveFilm. It has to rank as one of the most boring films I have ever sat through. Why did I sit through it? I'm still asking that question!

The plot points have been covered in other reviews, so I won't fill this one up with extraneous material. The guys playing Theo and Frank are both attractive, but poor Henry Regan (Theo) suffers from a lack of experience and it shows badly. His acting needs a lot more polishing and it was quite difficult to watch. The dialogue was improvised and regularly consisted of Frank asking "What's wrong Theo". Unfortunately, the recording was poor in places so some of it was indecipherable. The film also suffered from a distinct lack of narrative and lots of repetition. How many times can we see the same 'supernatural' images or Theo running after things that only he can see?

There was a lot of walking around and a little bit of supernatural hokum; some grave-robbing and some long yearning looks at an old country house and then it all seemed to be over. One reviewer mentioned that he isn't a person who requires a lot of gratuitous sex in a gay-themed movie to make it interesting and whilst I don't disagree with that statement, this could have done with lashings of sexy time in order to make it more watchable.

Looking through the extra bits on the DVD, in one deleted scene there were some cows. They were interesting and should have been kept in...that's the sort of level on which this movie could have been brought up from the mundane nonsense that it was. Thank goodness I only rented it.
