丈夫的秘密/錯戀

家境富裕的秋薇與丈夫守義婚姻美滿,卻遲遲未有小孩;秋薇中學同窗好友麗雲遇人不淑,為扶養兒子而落入風塵。秋薇對家境困難的麗雲十分照顧,未料麗雲竟是守義多年前的舊情人!麗雲的出現讓守義深陷回憶,為避免引起風波,麗雲遠走避居,卻在一日酒家應酬中與守義再次相逢,情不自禁有了一夜之歡,意外懷上守義的孩子,而秋薇得知真相後做出了一個令人意想不到的決定。

改編自日本小說與電影,竹田敏彥的《淚の責任》,林摶秋在通俗倫理劇的三角風波中注入犀利的社會觀察。對比當時的電影作品,本片有較多的女性意識與相濡以沫的互助情誼,使女性角色有更多的聲音,顛覆典型苦命形象,提供悲情以外的選擇,也使觀眾重新省思傳統家庭秩序和性別權力問題。而第三人稱女聲旁白總適時出現,表達對角色的同情和責備,烘托劇情,使全片更加通俗與賺人熱淚。(資料出處:臺灣國家電影中心工具箱)
