Things that are not said are usually the most important
Anything may happen. Anything. You may love somebody so much that just the fear of losing him/her makes you spoil it all, and end up losing him/her. You may wake up besides someone you hadn't even imagined you could know, and look at yourself now! It is as if somebody gave you one of those puzzles with pieces of a picture of Madrid, the photograph of some ponies, or the Niagara Falls. And the pieces are supposed to match, but they don't...
Ann and Don are two people living in a little lost village in North America that are going through a major crisis in their lives. Don Henderson (Andrew McCarthy) has seemingly finished recently a traumatic relationship due to his own errors. He is temporarily working for his father selling houses, while he tries to help depressed people at night working in the Hope Line just to avoid facing his problems (can someone who doesn't withstand himself help other people?). Ann (Lily Taylor) works in a photography store, and does not have a very clear view of what she intends to do with her life. Her boyfriend Bob phones her from Prague to tell her that their relationship is over, presumably because he has met another girl. It is in that moment when Ann notices that she didn't really loved Bob before, but she has started loving him now, when he phoned to end up their relationship. In that moment she starts wondering about things she should have told him and never did, and how stupid she was in not telling him the most important things and occulting minor unimportant things.
"Things I never told you" is the story of Ann and Don, but also of the rest of depressive, solitary and lost characters that come and go through the film. It is a melancholic and sorrowful movie about people who can't find love, or found and lost it (the excellent music and photography do help a lot to remark these features) dedicated to all the sensitive and solitary souls around the world. However, in spite of dealing with depressive people, it is not a depressive film. It is a film that makes you wonder whether you are doing the right thing with your life, whether you are sharing it with the right people, or you will find someone appropriate sometime. It is a film that makes you feel that you should be more honest with the people you appreciate, and that you should live the good moments intensely, because nobody knows how long they are going to last. So, don't wait until tomorrow to say or do those important things you are always delaying, because it may be too late, and things not said or done are usually the most important.
