      Mike H If this was an American movie the critic score wouldn't be anywhere near this high. This thing is nothing more than an entertaining potboiler. The acting is good, the direction is serviceable, the score is limp, also there are pop songs placed in scenes that are rather cringe. The ending was a HUGE GINORMOUS exposition dump with so many many plot holes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Ola G Dr. Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) has been slowly putting his life back together since his wife, Margot (Marie-Josée Croze), was apparently murdered by a serial killer using wild attack animals eight years before. However, Alex finds himself implicated in a double homicide – even though he knows nothing of the crimes. The same day, he receives an email that appears to be from Margot, which includes a link to surveillance footage that shows his wife looking alive and well; the message warns Alex that they are both being watched. As Alex struggles to stay one step ahead of the law, henchmen intimidate his acquaintances into telling them whatever they might know about him, eventually killing a friend named Charlotte... "Tell No One" was well received both critically and commercially. Academy Award-winning British actor Michael Caine said of the film it was the best he had seen in 2007 on the BBC's Film 2007 programme. He also included it among his Top Ten movies of all time in his 2010 autobiography, The Elephant to Hollywood. (Via Wikipedia) This French thriller based on the 2001 novel of the same name by Harlan Coben has clearly taken inspiration from the films "Frantic" and "The Fugitive" starring Harrison Ford in both. "Tell No One" won four categories at the 2007 César Awards in France: Best Director (Guillaume Canet), Best Actor (François Cluzet), Best Editing and Best Music Written for a Film. To be honest when I saw the trailer (well edited I must say...) I thought it looked somewhat intriguing, but the film suffers from a too long running time, plot holes, wishy washy performances in certain cases that don't convince, but the main issue with "Tell No One" is the far-fetched and too complicated ending that just makes everything fall flat like a pancake. And it so funny to see French movies as it's always the same actors/actresses in everything that is produced in France it seems. The same issue we have in the Nordics.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review D F really well done story, kept me guessing, must watch Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Cinephemeride [ A very great thriller masterfully produced by Guillaume Canet with the best French actors. Taking from start to finish Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Alain M a fantastic film noir like only the french can make em, a must see :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review Kevin L Yeah, alright. "Tell No One" is fine for what it is. This is mid-temperature cooking here. It's not a tepid serving, but it never really reaches oven mitt hot. It felt as much like a weekly tv movie-o'-the week starring Joe Mantegna as it did a cinema worthy film. A fairly heavy story line, all twists and visual replays that make the viewer question what's true and what's concocted. It's all handled well-enough by director Canet and his co-writers, until they got a little lazy or too formulaic. Bringing in some gangbanger types and writing the arch villain part as the cliched wealthy, arrogant aristocrat, took some of the realism and cleverness out of the movie for me. There's some questionable acting among some of these players, too. But the lead role of Arnaud Beck is given a strong performance by Francois Cluvet to go along with quality supporting work by Berleand, Scott Thomas, Croze, and Dussollier. Nice work on the key late scene between Arnaud and Levkowich (Berleand). We get a version for the wire, and one for us as much as for Beck. Berleand has Levkowich looking weary and beaten down. Which is how most anyone would feel after carrying all that on your conscience for that long. 3.2 stars Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Kevin Maher Times (UK) The most Hitchcockian film that Hitchcock never made, this ingenious French thriller takes Hitch’s concept of “the wrong man” to labyrinthine places. Rated: 4/5 May 26, 2023 Full Review Maitland McDonagh Time Out Rated: 4/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: A- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Tom Meek Cambridge Day The mystery deepens adroitly, and Canet's confidence in Cluzet shows as the actor carries the film convincingly and without a fault. Rated: 3.5/4 Jul 28, 2020 Full Review Mattie Lucas From the Front Row A taut, well crafted nail-biter that manages to rise above its genre, and give the audience just a little bit more. Rated: 3/4 Jul 6, 2019 Full Review C.J. Prince Way Too Indie Tell No One doesn't waste any time setting up the central plot. Jun 20, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
