Tell No One [DVD] [Region 1]
Region 1 USA/CA (
TELL NO ONE starts off innocently enough: sunlight streams through the trees at a gorgeous summer home as an Otis Redding song plays. But the ominous title is apt: the events in this French thriller based a Harlan Coben novel soon turn dark. Happily married couple Alex (Franois Cluzet) and Margot (Marie-Jose Croze) go for a swim, but their idyllic evening is interrupted by a brutal attack. Alex is knocked unconscious, and his wife is murdered. Almost a decade later, that night still haunts Alex. He receives an email pointing him to a link to a live webcam, where he sees a woman who looks remarkably like his dead wife turn and stare into the camera. Hope and confusion mount, but a discovery at the crime scene causes Alex to become the prime suspect in his wife's death, a murder that was thought to have been solved years ago.
When TELL NO ONE played in its native France, it picked up four Csar awards, the country's equivalent of the Oscar, and it's easy to see why. Director Guillame Canet (who also plays a small role in the film) has crafted a taut, well-told film. TELL NO ONE's narrative journey is filled with numerous twists and turns, but the audience is content to be along for the ride with Canet at the wheel. There are elements of Hitchcock and THE FUGITIVE, but the film never feels like a rip-off of the classics. It's a gripping, entertaining tale that features solid performances, especially from Canet (L'ENFER) and Kristin Scott Thomas in a supporting role.

3 stars out of 5 -- "Chopping back and forth in time, it's dynamically shot....Canet has rounded up a real 'Who's Who' of French acting talent..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his sees Guillaume Canet going for broke, piling twist upon twist....It's bursting with ideas..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "At the heart of Guillaume Canet's film -- in every sense -- is Francois Cluzet's award-winning performance..."
"Based on a Harlan Coben novel, this top-notch thriller from France is so twisty you may forget to breathe....It's as much a despairing love story as an edge-of-your-seat affair."
Los Angeles Times
"TELL NO ONE is about an innocent man on the run with nowhere to turn....[Mr. Cluzet] is a convincing Everyman with a heat and soul stretched to the breaking point."
New York Times
"It's THE BIG SLEEP meets VERTIGO with a dash of CSI....TELL NO ONE's plot thickens in about five ways at once, but they're all connected." -- Grade: A-
"TELL NO ONE is engaging in a tension-mounting, tightly wound kind of way....The cast here is uniformly superb, especially Kristin Scott Thomas..."
Included in Entertainment Weekly's 2008 Films Of The Year -- "[A]s artfully dense as THE BIG SLEEP, as painfully romantic as VERTIGO..."
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It contains a rich population of characters, but has been so carefully cast that we're never confused....One of the film's pleasures is its unexpected details..."
"[A] brilliant thriller....Everything we think we know from a series of flashbacks, dissolves in doubt or explodes into chases."
