Such tales are the issue du jour stateside, which makes Don't Tell's slavish adherence to Dr. Phil-inspired recovered-memory orthodoxies seem more than a touch ingenuous.

Goes off on too many tangents from the central story with irrelevant subplots that might actually have been decent movies on their own.

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.

A not-bad soap opera.

A paradigmatically mediocre foreign-film-Oscar nominee.

Comencini translates these tensions from her novel Beast in the Heart with a literal hand that is inclined to underscore anguished looks with explanatory flashbacks.

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.

Boyd van Hoeij

A crowd-pleasing Italian melodrama... but the humour and the drama do not mix well and Boni and Mezzogiorno never really convince.

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.

The film meanders and becomes painfully arbitrary in its storyline... Child abuse + funny lesbians = hilarious!!!

Comencini is attempting to put on some kind of show about modern gender and sexuality issues, but that's all it is: a show, and a fatuous one at that.

It's swiftly paced and never dull, but the heavy-handed symbolism comes fast and thick.

Here's the problem with Cristina Comencini's Don't Tell: it should have been directed by Pedro Almodovar.

Emanuel Levy

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.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The lifelong shame and trauma experienced by the victims of childhood incest are grippingly dramatized by Cristina Comencini, consummate mistress of Italian family drama, in Don't Tell, probably her most successful film.
