Constructed like a calling card for Hollywood employment, as when a montage of funeral and wedding memories is underscored with 'Lilac Wine' by Jeff Buckley.

Sews us tightly into a story that not only challenges the brain but engages the heart.

It has a terrific setup that keeps us interested (it's based on a well-regarded novel by Harlan Coben), and there's at least one really great, thrilling action scene that makes the whole thing watchable.

Tell No One is good enough to warrant not only a long run in art houses, but considerable attention for a director who dared to tweak a hugely popular novel and made it work.

Tell No One, French director Canet's excellent adaptation of Harlan Coben's bestselling novel, has everything a great personal-paranoia/persecution movie needs.

These classy people are put to the trashiest ends, and, for the most part, it's a pleasure to see them rooting around in the garbage.

A French thriller that teases the intellect, shocks the senses and is sometimes simply too suspenseful for comfort.

Tell No One feels like a novel, rich with character and incident, unafraid to demand attention from its audience while unspooling a twisting, suspenseful story.

Cluzet's brooding performance propels the movie, and writer-director Guillaume Canet...skillfully orchestrates the cascading revelations.

Actually too clever by half, but also so skillfully played that it carries you breathlessly along for the duration.

A man wakes from unconsciousness to find his wife dead and himself the center of suspicion as strange forces and deadly assassins close in from all sides. So many twists and turns it would hard to encapsulate spoilers for this one.

It feels like an American movie, dubbed in French ... Or perhaps, better put, it feels like a bunch of French people trying to act like Americans.
