Tell No One is, as others have said, a delightful light comedy. It benefits hugely from its charming lead Josafat Vagni, who opens the film practising telling his parents he is gay to his mirror image. It seems to be borrowed from Taxi Driver, but you quickly realise it's not the same kind of film, in spite of the Italian connection. You get the nuances across the language divide even not knowing Italian, and straight away you are won over by his screen persona. I knew at that point that it would be enjoyable to sit through, and it remains buoyant throughout. It is really a very good antidote to modern life, in many ways, and has some good sequences in its more farcical episodes. Mattia, his boyfriend and other friends and family members are all quite charming without overdoing it, however it does become a bit sentimental towards the end ... Vagni just about pulls it off. I would have liked some extra turn in events that would have been more surprising or given it that bit more oomph - if only they could have added this it could have been very good indeed. It also lacks a distinctive visual style and does look a bit like a soap opera, although everything is pleasing on the eye. It has an innocent good nature that should be cherished these days ...

4.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Delight, 19 Jan 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tell No One [DVD] (DVD)
A truly delightful comedy, with a deep sincerity and profound resonance.

Deeply unsettled by his inability to tell his parents of his homosexuality and his love for Eduard (who in turn wants so much to meet those parents believing they have been told of their relationship), makes for a whimsical and charming comedic unraveling. Matthia atypically lives the life of a perfect son, believing he has to live up to that ideal. He believes that if any honesty was to be shown to his mother and father his world would come to a devastating and immediate end. Desperate to maintain the deep and sincere affections he has for his parents, he cannot bring himself to be honest with them, whereas in truth they are as unsettled as he is. Obsessed with their own problems, Matthia's conflict is furtherest from their minds.

What results is a beautiful unwrapping of deep affections, true emotions and a love that transcends .

A beautiful movie, that had me both laughing and crying.

This is a superb film. The acting is very life-like but you have to be quick with your Italian or with the subtitles. Sex scenes are rare but the film overall is hugely enjoyable, A familiar storyline but well worth watching as it is refreshing and the two principal characters are soooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!

I watched this film twice over two nights and found it excellent. There is a nice twist to the ending, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny enough to keep you watching, 27 April 2014

Ok, this is a simple farce based around two lads, one of whom is in the closet but has told his bf that his family are completely supportive. The comedy ensues as his bf announces a surprise visit. It was certainly funny enough and fast enough paced to keep you watching and to provide enough laughs to keep my interest, so I'd rate it as good. Have seen far far worse gay movies, so this is one to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab, Italian gay comedy, 18 Jan 2014

This review is from: Tell No One [DVD] (DVD)
Original title of this was `Come non detto' roughly meaning best left unsaid. Released as `Tell no one' which makes it sound a tad sinister but it is actually a very warm comedy. It is all about Mattia who is gay but is too ashamed / afraid to come out to his parents, he has to his friends and has had to suffer abuse at school too. So he is moving to Madrid to live with his boyfriend - Eduardo. The thing is he has told Eduardo that his family are all in the know and are all happy swinging liberal types who welcome his gayness.

The problem is that his father keeps displaying behaviour that is almost homophobic, his mother is a bag of nerves, his sister is a resentful baby making machine and his 83 year old gran keeps applying for any job that is advertised irrespective of how unsuitable that it may be for her. Then on the eve of Mattia's leaving, Eduardo tells him that - big surprise - he is arriving in Italy that night for his farewell diner party.

What follows is a very funny, often a bit madcap but always entertaining romp as Mattia and friends try to stop his whole world from blowing up in his face.

I really enjoyed this, it is well acted, over the top when it needs to be stupid in the right places and with good translations in the sub titles; everyone was engaging and even the end credits were good. This is one that it is very easy to recommend and I hope you ruddy well enjoy it as much as I did.

One of those films you have to buy because of the hot guys. It's funny too. Sex scenes? Not really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tell No One [DVD] (DVD)
Don't expect anything new from the storyline here - nice gay boy isn't out to his family (only his best "girl" friend who is secretly in love with him and wishes he was straight) but then meeting and falling in love with another "out & proud" boy brings things to a crisis point.
However the story is well told with good acting, humour and lots of italian flair. Predictable but enjoyable to watch romcom.
