Tell No One - Phil's Five Words for Films -

Tell No One ( Ne le Dis a Personne) There were several times whilst watching this film that I found myself saying 'I'm not sure where this is going or what that was for, but I'll go with it'. The plot idea was excellent and the film gets to it's conclusion in a nice way but it is a long and sometimes slow journey. The initial set-up worked really well and the 'email scene' was very well done and quite chilling. Someone should make a film based on that idea alone. The multi-strand plot slowly reveals itself and you have to pay attention or you will quickly lose touch. Scenes with the main characters as children and the baffling musical-montage scenes could probably do with being left on the cutting room floor but the plot, dialogue and acting are excellent. The direction is quirky to say the least but, in the end, you are left with a gripping, twisty, who dunnit type film that has some truly nice moments. Francois Cluzet played a brilliant part as the desperate Doctor. Slow but enjoyable.

  1. I didn't like the fact that when they were children they were the same age but when they were adults there was at least a 20 year age gap...apart from that i'd say it was good, hehe....lalalala xx
