Tell No One

Don’t you hate it when critics review mystery movies and give away all thelot twists? I do. So I won’t reveal diddly about Tell No One, except toay that the young French director Guillaume Canet — channeling Hitchcock’sasterpiece Vertigo while working from an American mystery novel by theber-clever Harlan Coben — has fired off one terrific, twisty thriller.ot-blooded, haunting and packed with the pleasures of the unexpected, Tello One will pin you to your seat. Francois Cluzet is a marvel as Alex, the widower pediatrician who is jolted to learn that his wife MargotMarie-Josée Croze), believed murdered eight years ago, might just be alive. The acting is uniformly first-rate, with special props going to Kristencott Thomas as a lesbian married to Alex’s sister, François Berléand as aly cop, the director himself as a stud with dark secrets, and Jeanochefort and André Dussollier as two fathers too devoted to their children. The movie brims over with action — check out Alex’s run through traffic on the Paris beltway — but Canet scores a triumph by plumbing the violence of theind.
