March 16, 2006
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.

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.

Powerfully moving but laced with incisive wit.
