Product Description

After his critically-acclaimed directorial debut, Mon Idole (Whatever You Say), French actor Guillaume Canet now brings us Tell No One, based on American writer Harlan Coben's bestselling thriller. Pediatric Alex, devastated since his wife Margot was savagely murdered in the early days of their marriage eight years before, receives an anonymous email. When he clicks on the link indicated, he sees a woman's face standing in a crowd and being filmed in real time. Margot's face... Is she still alive? And why does she instruct him to tell no one? So many questions that our hero does not have time to consider: he barely even has time to raise the lid of this Pandora's Box before the police reopen the case. And, eight years down the line, the cops are determined that he will take the rap for murder. Canet has rounded up a stellar cast, which includes Marie-Josée Croze, Kristen Scott-Thomas, Nathalie Baye, André Dussollier, Jean Rochefort, Marina Hands and Canet himself in a $20-million budget thriller featuring relentless suspense and breathtaking action.


Tell No One is that rare thing, a French thriller that bears all the hallmarks of a Hollywood remake, only with the French left in. There's no actual time to ponder the glossy look and feel though, as François Cluzet's stoic but grief-stricken widower Alex races to clear his name, when the case of his wife's murder is reopened after eight years. This set up is wound even tighter upon his receipt of an email, seemingly from his wife, instructing him to follow those titular instructions.

What follows is a nerve-tugging chase movie – making best possible use of Harlan Coben’s source material – as Alex ducks and weaves between shady underworld goons, a gang of surprisingly helpful thugs and two laid back detectives, all of whom help raise the game of cat and mouse to dizzying heights. The twists and turns are many, and even though the story is a little too long, and its reveal steeped in a Miss Marple-sized helping of exposition, the film’s emotional centre remains intact to the very last scene. While a big studio remake of Tell No One won’t be short on A-List appeal and big noisy action, matching this film’s mix of thrills and heart will be a rare feat indeed. --Luke Mawson

Format: DVD
'Tell No One' (called 'Ne le dis à personne' in France) is the French film adaption of the bestselling stand-alone novel from Harlan Coben. The film begins when Alex Beck and his wife and long-time love, Margot visit the Beck family lake house for their 13th anniversary. During a late night swim in the lake Alex and Margot are attacked and left for dead. A few days later Margot's beaten body is found.
Eight years later and still struck with grief and heartache from the death of his wife, Alex receives a mysterious e-mail with a link to a webcam where his wife appears to still be alive. The email instructs him to Tell No One, leaving Alex wondering if his wife is still alive and he is now also a main suspect for some other bodies found at the lake and possibly also for his wife's apparent murder.

This is an excellent adaption of one of the best thrillers I've ever read and the French setting does not affect the story at all (the book is based in America), in fact it makes it better. The subtitles did put me off at first but once I was 10 minutes or so into the film I didn't even notice they were there. There's lots of plot twists and plenty of action and suspense. The characters are all played perfectly to the book's counterparts and the story is absolutely spot-on. My only disappointment really was that because I had read the book I already knew what was going to happen next.

Overall this is a perfect adaptation and is one that both fans of the book and thriller movie fans too should love. Highly recommended.

Other reviewers have elaborated on this film better than I can, so all I shall say is that this is one of the best thrillers I have ever seen. Although the author of the novel is American, and the scene of this film was originally set in the USA, the fact that this is a French film, shot in France, makes it even better, in my opinion.
The actors are superb and make the characters believable, despite their distinctly French flavour.
After receiving the DVD in the post I started to view the DVD only with the intention of satisfying myself that the DVD was in working order, but I became so hooked on it that I sat down and watched the whole film right through until the end!
And, no, I did not guess the twist at the end.
Superb film - enjoy it!

TELL NO ONE is a complex thriller cum poignant love story. Canet employs typical European tropes to produce a piece of nicely understated cinema that neatly avoids Hollywood excesses. We follow a grieving man's descent into turmoil when his long-dead wife appears to make an enigmatic reappearance. The small-scale action is always impressive and the bursts of violence shocking in their realism. The actors are equally effective at portraying everyday, believable characters placed in extraordinary circumstances. My only criticisms are that the plot is perhaps too convoluted and the resolution somewhat implausible. That said this is a successful puzzler that will keep you guessing and entertained throughout.

Tell No-One turns out to be a rather good French thriller and a distinct improvement on actor-director Guillaume Canet's first directorial effort Mon Idole. The early overhead shots of a couple driving through the countryside summon up echoes of Red Lights, Harry, He's Here to Help and The Vanishing in particular (though the film doesn't really match up to them, at least his influences are impeccable) as it sets up the back-story that sees Francois Cluzet's wife murdered. Fast forward eight years and the good doctor is still suspected by the police, especially when two bodies are unearthed near the murder scene that threaten his alibi. And then there's an email he receives with what looks like live footage of his very much alive wife...

There's a good supporting cast - a mostly excellent Andre Dussolier as the antagonistic father-in-law, Jean Rochefort showing once again that he's a much better actor when he doesn't dye his hair to look younger, Nathalie Baye as a razor-sharp lawyer, 36 Quai des Orfevres director Olivier Marchal as a vicious hood and even a less-autopilot-than-usual Kristin Scott-Thomas (maybe she should just stick to French-language parts?) - and it's a surprise to see Luc Besson's Europa Films making something so bourgeois that doesn't involve free-running or martial arts for a change, although there is one excellent chase sequence and a vicious female thug to keep his core constituency happy.

If it has a problem - apart from one credulity-straining moment near the end regarding motivation that isn't so much a plot-hole as the Channel Tunnel - it's that at the end of the day, it's JUST a thriller.

As a big fan of Harlan Coben it has always amazed me that Hollywood haven't beaten down his door demanding the rights to his stand alone novels.
They seem tailormade for the big screen with twists and turns galore and beliveable characters no James Bond heroics in his novels just ordinary people finding themselves in danger.

So it was a surprise to see that this had been made as a French film. Please don't let this put you off or you will have missed out on one of the thrillers of the year.

The sub titles aren't too fast so you'll easily follow the complex story. Dr Beck' swife is taken whilst swimming by the lake late one night 8 years later he is stuggling to get on with his life when he is sent an email of an outside web cam suddenly his "dead" wide is looking at him down the lens ...

Great casting and as someone who read the book when it first came out I had happily forgotten exactly what happened but as the story came back it was pleasing to see that they had been faithfull to the great book.
At around the 2 hour mark I greatly enjoyed the pacing of the novel there didn't seem the need to have something dramatic happening every two minutes the violence was kept to a minimum but brutal when it needs to be. Loved some scenes with music from U2 amongst others featuring maybe focusing on the subtitles made me more aware of the music.

I confess I haven't seen many foreign films and had I not read the book I would probably have never contemplated renting the film glad I did and so will you.
