Poured also Roz – girlfriends since childhood. Together they throughout all life live in a cozy corner on the ocean coast, there they find the beloved, in the same place become mothers.

Pairs are compelled to leave, that young people could get own families, get children, but their first love anywhere did not get to …
Prior to the beginning of hire the picture had the name «Two mothers» and even managed to participate under this name in Sandense in 2013
Founders and the audience the comic strip screen versions often accuse of infantility – say, they follow the tastes the children’s complexes, hobbies, cave in under oppression of adult life, are not ready to crucial independent decisions. Do not trust! The real infantility is «A secret inclination». All plot of this film is constructed on indecision, self-admiration, egoism, unwillingness to take responsibility. Heroes of the film form the closed world in which at all prescription of the relations only own ego predominates. It is characterized even by picture locations – almost all action occurs in two houses of the main characters located in the neighbourhood and on an ocean coast where women luxuriate on sand or a floating pier, and young people dissect on the boards on waves.
Literary basis of the film became one of four stories of the collection "Grannies" of the British writer, the owner of the Nobel Prize on Doris Lessing literature
The first thought – desire to appear in the same place. Round improbable beauty the Australian greens, blue-green ocean waters, yellow sand from which it would not be desirable to rise. But every minute of viewing you understand that heroes kill themselves, including that live in this small slice of paradise on the earth. Every evening these two strange pairs (the spouse of one of heroines died when sons were still teenagers, and the second got divorced, without wishing to move from the province to Sydney) carry out on a verandah of one of houses behind a wine glass, nobody wishes to open for itself(himself) other world, believing that it is possible to carry out all life in a nest, in heat, in eternal rest. This feeling of narrowness of the world also pushes heroes in embraces of each other. Any sympathy to heroes is supposed, but, except thought «Well what all of them are idiots», anything other in the head does not arise.
To actors, however, it is difficult to show claims. Young people – and it is Savyer Semyuel from "Twilight" and «Wedding defeat» and his less known contemporary James Freshvill – really look young demigods though their egocentrism does not cause anything, except irritation. Naomi Watts and Robin Right – young ladies, certainly, talented and still very attractive (Jennifer Aniston’s thanks – now in a bathing suit any popular actress regardless of the age is obliged to seem). But to play them there is nothing. More precisely, they understand that play a certain artificial design with very doubtful communications, thoughts and actions, and because as if wander on a dark room – will come across corners, touch with elbows each other and thus look if not scared, guarded. And in all this it is not visible to the real love, it is rather a calculation and secret intention though so deeply screenwriters and did not go.
