Tell No One (Ne le dis à personne) by Guillaume Canet, 2006

From the director of Little White Lies and Blood Ties

Eight years ago, pediatrician Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) was the prime suspect in his wife's murder. He's put all that behind him, but now that two dead bodies have been found near his home, he's suspected of wrongdoing once again. The case takes an unexpected turn when he receives an anonymous e-mail showing his wife alive -- and eight years older -- instructing him to "tell no one."

This movie is great: interesting, intelligent, with an amazing cast including the best actors of french cinema, and not too french either, with a rhythm that reminds me more of American cinema. It is well structured, creating a great suspense, with an outcome that is unpredictable. All we expect from a thriller.

  1. Good review. This is a great French thriller based on a Harlan Coben novel - it's interesting when an author from one country is adopted by another in this way, just like the recent Japanese adaptation of Mary Norton's The Borrowers.

    1. You're right, I have now to recommend you another movie, which was as smart as this one, named "Anthony Zimmer". Brilliant. They made an American remake of it, "the Tourist" which was really not good, they even changed the ending, so it won't be a spoiler to tell you that. Let me know what you think of it!
