Tell No One
« on: May 27, 2009, 05:17:10 PM »
I just watched the French film, Tell No One (Ne le dis à personne) last night.  It has some symbolic themes and might be of interest to anyone with a Jungian lens.  It's an anima story, in essence.  Not as purely archetypal as some of the other films mentioned in this section, but I did notice the subtle anima work theme or loss (of the anima) and search/redemption.  Some overtly symbolic elements as well (e.g., a stag that leads the protagonist into the woods where his wife and lifelong love and he had carved their initials in a tree).  The whole heroic ego/personal shadow/Demon dynamic is prominent and interestingly twisty (but not necessarily condensed and canned for easy psychologization).

And it's an entertaining suspense/mystery/mistaken identity film, to boot.
