“Tell No One” (2006)

A French film that didn’t get much box office love during its limited release last year, Tell No One (Ne le dis à personne) is mysterious and compelling. Dr. Alex Beck is a widower, and on the 8th anniversary of his wife’s death, he receives an email suggesting he’s still alive. When he tries to find out more, bad things happen to him and those around him. A great rental if you like dark, stylish thrillers. A US remake is in the works, according to IMDB.

    We have this one on our Netflix queue - it’s actually available through watch it now, which is nice and convenient… I’ve been interested in giving this a try for a while, but I haven’t been in the mood much for sub-titles (maybe my French is still good enough that I wouldn’t need them, but why chance it?). Soon though!

    If you have time this summer, you should read the Harlan Coben novel on which the film is based. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    Thanks for the rec! I’ll keep it in mind, and maybe wait till the movie fades a bit so I’m not so matchy matchy when reading it.

    The movie is so good I barely noticed the subtitles, though when I did bother to try to listen to the French, the dialogue didn’t always match the subtitles–the subtitles sometimes included nuance as well that I might’ve missed reading vs. listening.
