Tell No One (2006)


France sure know how to make a good thriller. After recently seeing Point Blank I read about this movie on someone else’s blog (sorry I can’t remember who it was, but I follow so many). Since it also starred François Cluzet, who I really loved in The Intouchables (which you really should see immediately if you can) I had to check it out. So is it any good?

review Tell No One

At the beginning of the movie we see Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) enjoying some time off together with his wife at the spot they seem to have been visiting since their youth. After some skinny dipping and lovemaking they get into an argument, she leaves and seems to disappear. Alexandre is knocked out and later hears that his wife has been murdered. Forward 8 years and he suddenly starts receiving mysterious emails which seem to indicate she might still be alive. He is completely obsessed by it and decides to try to find out the truth.


Now this is a great thriller, which just keeps on adding little twists to the story. It has a great cast and tells it all in a compelling way. If you like a good thriller this is one you should check out.

Score: 8

    Tell No One is a surprisingly strong thriller. The ending loses a bit of the film’s momentum, but it’s a twisty film that develops an emotional punch. I really wish more people would take a chance to see this.

      Yeah, it slows down a bit towards the end, but I agree that more people should give it a chance!

    Yeah some great twists in this one. Liked it but it hasn’t stuck in my memory a great deal.

      I doubt that I’ll remember much of it next year too, but it’s a very thrilling ride to experience at least once.

      You should go see Intouchables now then because that will be one people also will talk about in the future ;)

    Love this movie, made more interesting because the director’s a decent actor too, and I’m sure this was his feature debut? I’d recommend Love Me If You Dare, nothing like this but stars Marion Cotillard and the director of this – another great French film.

      I got that from the picture you use. I have to warn you though as I didn’t like it as much…please be kind in your anger ;)

    Need to catch this film. French thrillers are usually pretty damn good. This looks like it’s following that trend.

      Yeah, I’m trying to see more of them, but it’s hard to find a good list I can follow.

    Remember watching it a while back. I do agree that the French make some delicious thrillers and is one of them. Good one!

      Thanks. Recently saw Sleepless Night, which wasn’t as good as this, but entertaining enough.
