Post a Comment. This one, Hector And the Secrets Of Love sees psychiatrist Hector travclling to the Far East ostensibly in search of the inventor of a love potion that really works. Like his Search For Happiness, the book is written in a simple and very quirky style that seems childlike on the surface but is actually quite deep when you scratch below it. And then a whole series of alternative of people who have some part of happiness.
Hector takes notes and keeps going, his girlfriend frustrated but materially distracted in their posh pad.
When things turn for the worse you know since it's a fable that it will not stay that way. New adventures arise. But does he find happiness? Or is it, like Dorothy in Oz, a bit like you realize there is truly no place like home? What makes this very fun, very unexpected romp worthwhile above all is the funny fun and sometimes very serious performance by Pegg. He's got a well known screen presence from the wacky comedies like "Shawn of the Dead" and in a way he plays off of that here.
But he also transcends it enough to make you believe there is more than meets the eye here. The whole movie is fun because he's fun to be with. And will you learn a thing about what makes people happy? You can shout—hey, that's not the point— but it still leaves the movie a bit superficial. It leaves it very fun, too, however, and all is quite well in the end.
