Movie Info

An innocent man is on the run after he's accused of murder and his spouse seemingly returns from the grave in this thriller from France. Alex Beck (François Cluzet) is a doctor who has slowly been putting his life back together after his wife Margot was murdered by a serial killer. Eight years on, Alex is doing well enough until he finds himself implicated in the murder of two people, with plenty of evidence pointing to him as the killer even though he knows nothing of the crimes. The same day, Alex receives an e-mail that appears to be from Margot (Marie-Josée Croze), which includes a link to a video clip that seems to be recent and features his late wife looking alive and well. Margot's message warns Alex that they are both being watched, and he struggles to stay one step ahead of the law as a gang of strong-arm men intimidate Alex's friends into telling whatever they might know about him. Alex's sister Anne (Marina Hands) persuades her well-to-do lover Helene (Kristin Scott Thomas) to hire a well respected attorney, Elisabeth Feldman (Nathalie Baye), to handle Alex's case. While Elisabeth tries to keep Alex out of jail, she learns that her client has a warrant out for his arrest, and Alex goes on the lam while he and his lawyer struggle to find out the truth about the murder as well as Margot's reappearance. Tell No One (aka Ne Le Dis a Personne) was based on the international best-selling novel by Harlan Coben. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Cool, French thriller. A man and his childhood sweetheart are enjoying a night out but things take a turn for the shit when she randomly disappears. Obviously the man is devastated and still visits her family home years after it happened. So it comes as a bit of a suprise when he gets an e-mail supposedly from his mrs! Cue plenty of suspense and twists as we attempt to find out what happened and who's involved. The ending might drag on a bit but Tell No One is a decent thriller.

    Tell No One is a fantastic French thriller that grabs your attention in the first scene then keeps you on the edge of your seat until the big reveal at the end. The mysterious plot is extraordinarily well-crafted, with absolutely no loose threads or plot holes, and the explanation at the end of the movie clears up any confusion you may have had whilst watching the plot unfold. If you like thrillers and murder mysteries, this is absolutely a must-see.

    Excellent movie. Surprisingly so, in fact. I was expecting it to be good, but since movies like this leave the big revelation for the climax of the movie, I was surprised to see myself completely into the movie from beginning to end. It's an exceptionally well crafted and well paced movie and with solid performances. All in all, I can't really complain about anything in this movie. As mentioned, it's pretty damn great.

    French thriller film directed by Guillaume Canet and based on the novel of the same name by Harlan Coben. It was written by Guillame Canet and Philippe Lefèbvre and stars François Cluzet.Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) is a doctor who has slowly been putting his life back together after his wife Margot (Marie-Josée Croze) was murdered by a serial killer. Eight years on, Alex is doing well, until he finds himself implicated in a double homicide, which has plenty of evidence pointing to him as the killer - though he knows nothing of the crimes.Well made and directed movie, with a good screenplay and great music score.Worth a try.
