I'm not going to tell the plot of the movie because that's really useless, it's just at the top of this page!!!!!

I thought it was a very beautiful slow film in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. It's not exciting or scary, not much actually happens, but it's still very beautiful, besides, life is rarely exciting, right?

Go to church on Sunday, not because you believe anything, but because the women have their hats on then.

An unlikely romance unfolds on a deserted island off the Scottish coast. And it then turns out to go deeper than both parties had previously dreamed. A tearjerker for the advanced, with a bleak salty sea breeze to match, and people who don't need words to say a lot. And a dog. Happiness is in the little things. Even if it only lasts a short time, or maybe just then.

Beautiful landscapes in a place you dream of going to, and acting by people who don't seem to be playing but are just being. Everything I look for in a movie.

Belgian Cinema made in Wallonia Brussels...and it is Bouli Lanners, writer, director, actor who is responsible for it and at the same time a little guarantee of solid work.

"Nobody has to know" is a beautiful, gloomy but also sensitive film that may seem a bit crazy throughout the story, but when some questions are answered, it also takes on a deeper dimension.

You don't have to be ashamed of love.

Good Bouli.
