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.
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.
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!
I am not going to give you a summary of the story as other reviewers have done that very well. I can only add that I hadn't read the book before seeing the movie but I saw an interview of Canet and his cast in a TV show about cinema and this interview persuaded me to see this movie. I was not disappointed at all. The ending was a bit surprising and the story is at the same time dark, really intense, intriguing and also very moving.
I usually don't like François Clusey but he was OK in this movie and supported by a very impressive cast (Natalie Baye-wonderful actress-André Dussolier, Kristin Scott Thomas, François Berléand,Jean Rochefort,
Guillaume Canet, Lady Chatterley's actress Marina Hands...)
The music was composed by M, famous French singer and composer!, and it is the perfect music for a dark, intriguing story like 'Tell No-one'. This is definitely a must-see movie!

Ok so the initial premise is absurd, but does the explanation have to be so utterly ridiculous? It's a shame, because in between the film is really well done and exciting.Published 11 months ago by Charlie Allnutt
