REVIEW:

Without having read Harlan Cobenís bestselling novel I had no idea what was expecting me. The trailer told me that there would be a heinous murder followed by an ordinary manís attempt to find some answers. It starts by setting up how happy the Beckís are as a married couple, but the director spares no time to get to Margotís murder. And before we know it 8 years have passed and Alex is a somewhat reclusive and depressed widower.

The street thug Bruno is given a big introductory scene as he tries to get his injured son into the ER. He even punches a doctor before Alex can intervene and calm down the situation. Bruno then tries to thank the doctor with a wad of cash. And when Alex laughs and asks him to put his money away, he instead offers his services in the form of a plasma TV. Right here we know that Alex will come to rely on Brunoís services as the movie unveils. And this is a streak I would like to highlight. There are more than a few set ups in this movie and they are in fact all paid off. The director, like Coben before him, leaves no holes in the story for the audience to fill.

The movie has endless twists and turns and it was hard to guess where it would end up, a huge plus in the very predictable movie landscape of today. And as Alex falls deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole pieces of the information he retrieves are showed to us in flashbacks. These flashbacks do not only bring us back to the night of Margotís murder, but also to much earlier events. This is a first person narrative where pieces of the puzzle get revealed to Alex and us at the same time. There are quite a few different players that sit on information, but Alex never knows more than we do.

Let me point out that Alex is no more James Bond or Jason Bourne than the guy selling you the paper this morning. Itís the story of an ordinary guy thatís being thrown into an unordinary series of events. This is much of the brilliance to the story as we have so much easier to identify and feel compassionate with him. There is one particular sequence where this is strongly portrayed. After having fled from the police, who suspects him of murder, Alex faces a 6-lane highway in order to escape. His only option is to defy the heavy traffic and make it to the other side of the road. Thereís nothing elegant or serene about his escape. Itís doubtful, clumsy and downright scary. Itís safe to reveal that Alex makes it to the other side and leaves a minor pile-up and the cops momentarily behind him. But him doing so leaves you with a strong feeling of what you just witnessed felt both real and truthful.

The British actress Kristin Scott Thomas does a great job supporting the cast as Alexís homosexual sister. Thomas who usually is seen in major Hollywood productions shows up most of her range as she fights with her wife, tries to be Alexís grounded confidant and gives both the police and her brotherís lawyer a piece of her mind.

Tell No One borderlines on a 5 out of 5, but it is actually the soundtrack that manages to bring it down to a solid 4. It feels a little as the French filmmakers tried to make it a more accessible and export friendly movie in the post production phase. The soundtrack that includes songs by Jeff Buckley and U2 feels a bit off and doesnít really match the French tone of the movie. Nonetheless this is a solid effort by Canet and not only a must-see for the appreciators of French cinema.
