Tell No One Review

Alexander Beck (Francois Kluze) and Margot (Marie-Jose Croz) have known each other since childhood. They grew up, got married and were happy until that night in a lake house, when Margot was killed, and Alexander was stunned by a blow to the head, from which he lost consciousness and fell into the water. Alexander was found on the shore, where he was not clear who pulled him out, he was in a coma for a while, but still got out and recovered.

Eight years have passed since that terrible night. Alexander is still terribly worried about the loss of his wife and tries to forget his job - he is a pediatrician. He is very supported by Helen Perkins (Christine Scott Thomas), his sister's girlfriend and mistress.

Periodically, Alexandra and her sister are visited by police lieutenant Philip Maynard (Philippe Lefebvre), who continues to ask questions and find out all the circumstances of the case, despite the fact that in the death of Margot was accused of a serial killer, on the conscience of which two more people in those parts.

At one point, Alexander receives a letter in the mail, the headline of which contains information known only to him and Margot. The letter contains a link to a public video service, where the recent shooting from a street video camera is laid out. In the video, you can see a woman who looks a lot like Margot.


I recently wrote a review of Guillome Cane's new film "The Beautiful Era" and I was asked in the comments why there is no review of his most acclaimed film, "Don't Tell Anyone". And indeed, I have seen "Little Secrets" at Cana, the not too successful sequel "Little Secrets of a big company" and the strange comedy "Eternally Young". And his most acclaimed film "Don't Tell No To No One" - four Cesar wins in 2007 and five other nominations - I somehow missed. I decided to see it.

The script of this film was written by Guillaume Cane together with Philip Lefebvre (they both played episodic roles in the film), based on the acclaimed American detective bestseller "Tell No One" by Harlan Koben, released in 2001. Cane and Lefebvre only transferred American realities to French soil.

The plot of the picture is swirling very famously, the dynamics of the story - excellent. In general, the film looks more than exciting, I just could not break away from it. And even the involvement in the action of various characters, about which initially it is completely unclear who they are, who works for them and what goals are in front of them, did not confuse, because gradually all explained and what happened in a clear picture.

In American films, it often happens that the picture looks like very interesting, but when you get to the final and start to unwind events from the end to the beginning, you suddenly realize that there is no normal cause-and-effect relationship, that everything is promoted as well as looks extremely unreliable.

It's not like that here. Cause-and-effect relationships from beginning to end and from end to beginning look quite logical, especially when the whole intrigue is fully revealed. Of course, there are certain cinematic assumptions, but by and large, everything is connected and really exciting.

The main character played by Francois Klose - excellent. His character actually holds the whole movie, he is always in the spotlight. Alexander Beck, not yet recovering from the death of his wife, gets into a whirlpool of events, sometimes very dangerous, and struggles to get to the truth, because he understands that all these eight years he did not know the whole truth. By the way, Klose got for this role "Cesar." (And Kluze played Cane in "Little Secrets", where actors Gilles Lellosz, Laurent Lafitte, and Joel Dupusz also moved from this film.)

Excellent actor Gilles Lellosz in "Don't Tell Anyone" appears at the beginning of a strange episode, but in the second half of the film, his character Bruno has a few cool episodes and there explains what was caused the scene at the beginning of the film. By the way, Lellouche is an Arab here, and it looks very funny.

Good British actress Christine Scott Thomas from childhood well fluent in French, in her youth was a student of the Paris School of Art, eighteen years was married to the French doctor Francois Oliviern and more than a dozen years lived in Paris. So she not only repeatedly starred in French films but even played in France on the theatrical stage. Here she has a very good, although, unfortunately, a very small role and really did shine she managed only at the beginning of the film in the conversation of Helen with Alexander.

A very interesting role for Andre Dussolier, who played Margot Jacques's father here. Jacques - a former policeman, a man very strict, hard, and adamant. Dussolier was nominated for the Cesar Award for the role, but he didn't win it.

Burnt lady-lawyer Elizabeth Feldman played the favorite actress of my childhood - Natalie Bay. Her lawyer turned out to be very spectacular - she made a rope out of the police.

In a very small cameo here appeared Jean Rochefort, and this actor is always nice to see.

The picture is very good: you can not even say that this is only the second feature film for Cana. (He did as an actor in sixty-eight films and TV series.) And some of the scenes were very, very complex, such as the scene of Alexander's escape from the clinic, when he was chased by the police. How they even filmed the scene of Beck running across a multi-lane freeway with busy traffic - I do not understand.

The great film turned out, looked with great pleasure, and with incessant attention. It is good that still did not miss and strongly recommend seeing those who have it, as well as I, in my time for some reason, did not look.
