Dark shadows from a woman's past come back to haunt her in this drama from writer and director Cristina Comencini. Sabina (Giovanna Mezzogiorno) would seem to have a charmed life -- she has a successful career as a voice actress, a loving and supportive relationship with her boyfriend, Franco (Alessio Boni), and a pair of close friends she can confide in, Maria (Angela Finocchiaro) and Emilia (Stefania Rocca).

Don't Tell, Italy's submission for the foreign-language Oscar, has strong performances, but the story takes too long to get off the ground.
Well worth seeing for its sensitive and never maudlin portrayal of a sister and brother bonded together by a family secret.
Days of Our Lives fans, enjoy.
Don't Tell, which was unaccountably nominated for an Oscar for best foreign language film, is no better than a second-tier candidate for the Lifetime Channel.
The film meanders and becomes painfully arbitrary in its storyline... Child abuse + funny lesbians = hilarious!!!
Though tackling such potentially subversive subjects as incest and lesbianism, this inexplicably Oscar-nominee from Italy is basically a Lifetime Original performed as a magic show.
Here's the problem with Cristina Comencini's Don't Tell: it should have been directed by Pedro Almodovar.
It's swiftly paced and never dull, but the heavy-handed symbolism comes fast and thick.
Just because American films frequently exploit repressed memories as a plot device in nasty genre pictures doesn't make the genteel Don't Tell a sophisticated or particularly insightful film.
Goes off on too many tangents from the central story with irrelevant subplots that might actually have been decent movies on their own.
A well-acted melodrama with some engaging characters and a storyline that holds the attention
