Film Review: Tell No One (2006)
Tell No One (2006). Directed by Guillaume Canet. The film is set in France, initially 8 years prior to present day. Alexandre Beck (Francois Cluzet), a paediatrician, is at a favourite childhood retreat with his childhood sweetheart and now wife. The childhood retreat is a lake, and they spend a brief time skinny dipping. His wife leaves to check their dog is OK and he hears screams, he swims to try and save her but is attacked by an unknown assailant and is knocked unconscious back into the water. Tell No One is simply great dark drama. It weaves together a complex story with various twists and turns, with great performances from Cluzet and the rest of the cast. For a relatively low budget film it creates a very believable backdrop. This is certainly my sort of film with the focus on a rich story and deep characters. Recommended for drama fans who can cope with the subtitles. 5/5 (Excellent)
